College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Scores Applied to General Education
A student earning a score of 50 or above on a CLEP exam meets the following general education (GE) areas. The Cypress College transcript will show the CLEP exam credit applicable to the Native AA/AS GE as detailed below. Admissions and Records evaluators will adjust CLEP exam credit as applicable when a student applies for CSU GE Breadth or IGETC certification.
This CLEP policy information for CSU GE Breadth is available at: http://www.calstate.edu/AcadAff/codedMemos/AA-2015-19.pdf. CLEP scores may not currently be used for IGETC.
Note: *Students should not repeat classes for which they have earned CLEP credit unless a specific university requires it for their major. CLEP transfer credit awarded for admission and transfer major requirements is determined by the CSU.
