UW- La Crosse allows students who have gained knowledge through military training, independent study, advanced high school courses, noncredit adult courses, or professional development to take examinations for possible college credit. College Level Examination Program (CLEP credits) can help you to move directly to more advanced classes. In addition, obtaining CLEP credits will allow you to complete your college education more quickly and at a lower cost. The University of Wisconsin-La Crosse will follow the American Council on Education (ACE) guidelines and recommendations for minimum scores for awarding credit in all subject examinations. Students should contact the Counseling and Testing Center (608) 785-8073 for information about CLEP and to order the exam.
