Colleges / Universities on this list are listed in no special order, but are all Regionally Accredited (RA) and have a public CLEP policy (meaning I can find it in one of their publications.) You can look up colleges using the same tools I use:
(1) Accreditation U.S. Department of Education Accreditation Database
(2) Search “CLEP” on the College’s website.
Regional accreditation is very important when choosing a dual enrollment college *during high school* because credit earned at a non-RA college credit rarely transfers into RA colleges. After your teen graduates high school, choosing an RA or non-RA college is a matter of career direction and personal preference. Examples of careers that require an RA degree are generally those that require a state-issued license: Nurse, Medical Doctor, Physician Assistant, Lawyer, CPA, Dietitian, Psychologist, K-12 Teacher, Social Worker, etc. or that require a master’s degree or higher. Non-RA college attendance is discouraged on this site as a general policy.
