  1. Is there a basic chart for Clep and equivalent College course name/numbers? For example, I know that American Goverment is a Clep exam for the basic course POLS1101.


    1. Each individual college that accepts / awards college credit for CLEP will generate their own chart. For instance, POLS1101 might be the equivalent at College A, but at College B it may count as a social science elective. Unless you’re degree planning for this coming year, finding out the *specific* equivalency isn’t as important as finding ways to generate college credit from the high school courses you’re already planning. Great question!
