The May 2019 CLEP® Notes, College Level Examination Program’s (CLEP®) monthly e-newsletter, featured a BPCC graduate in its Student Spotlight.

BPCC graduate Deana Elliott was highlighted in the CLEP® May Student Spotlight sharing her story on how she was able to use CLEP® testing to receive her degree sooner. BPCC Testing Center Director Lynn Brown submitted the article for the Student Spotlight to highlight how Deana tested out of an entire year of college courses with CLEP®.

CLEP® is a group of standardized tests created and administered by the College Board. These tests assess college-level knowledge in thirty-three subject areas and provide a mechanism for earning college credits without taking college courses.

According to the CLEP® website, “the College Board’s CLEP® has been the most widely trusted credit-by-examination program for over 50 years, accepted by 2,900 colleges and universities and administered in more than 2,000 test centers. This rigorous program allows students from a wide range of ages and backgrounds to demonstrate their mastery of introductory college-level material and earn college credit. Students can earn credit for what they already know by getting qualifying scores on any of the 33 examinations.”
