U.S. Government Credit


I have a great resource list for those who want to teach U.S Government course this year that lines up with CLEP.

These resources are MORE THAN ENOUGH to DIY a full-year program ending in CLEP. If you only want to do 1 semester, you’ll have to pick and choose.

Beyond high school credit, the CLEP American Government exam yields 3 college credits.

NOTE: if your teen has already taken AP American Government test or a college class called American Government, the CLEP will likely duplicate those credits- meaning a college won’t award credit twice for the same course.
