College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

This program was created by the College Board to allow students to demonstrate college-level achievement through a series of exams in undergraduate college courses.  Baruch College awards credits for some CLEP subject examinations in certain disciplines in which specified scores have been earned.

In spring 2007 the faculty members of the Weissman School of Arts and Sciences and the Zicklin School of Business voted to change policy regarding CLEP examinations. As of January 25, 2008, Baruch College will not award any credits based on CLEP exams except MTH 2610 (Calculus).  (revised 09/26/2007)

Students taking CLEP exam should arrange to have their scores sent to:
  • Office of Admissions -Transfer Evaluation Unit
    Baruch College/CUNY
    151 E 25th Street 725
    New York, NY 10010

The credits granted will be posted on the student's college transcript.
