College Level Examination Program

The CollegeBoard’s College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) allows students from a wide range of backgrounds to demonstrate their mastery of introductory college-level material and earn college credit. At FIT, students will earn credit for what they already know by getting qualifying scores that meet or exceed the equivalent of a C grade. Official transcripts are required for transfer credit evaluation.

To register for the CLEP exam and find a test center, go to the CollegeBoard website https://clep.collegeboard.org

The equivalencies below are subject to revision.
