The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP) gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on any of 34 examinations. Earn credit for knowledge you've acquired through independent study, prior course work, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships. Learn how CLEP helps you.
Sacred Heart University administers the DSST exam and awards college credit for successful completion of the DSST and Excelsior tests. Sacred Heart University also awards credit for non-collegiate sponsored learning evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE) and the New York Regents. Up to 60 credits can be earned through these methods.
The Sacred Heart University CLEP Testing Center is on our Stamford Campus. We are CLEP Test Center #3944.
CLEP Testing for Military Personnel and Veterans
Active-Duty Service Members:
CLEP exams are funded by the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (Dantes) for eligible military personnel and civilian employees with a proper identification.
Who is Eligible for Dantes-Funded CLEP Exams?
Service members are able to take DANTES – funded CLEP exams at college tests centers without paying the exam fee, but are still required to pay the test center registration fee to the college that provides the service.
Veterans can claim reimbursement for CLEP exams and exam administration fees under provisions of the Veterans’ Benefits Improvement Act of 2004, which enhances the education benefits of the Montgomery GI Bill. For more information about eligibility, visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website.
