CLEP is a national program that offers students credit by computer-based examination. This allows students to have the opportunity to obtain recognition for achievement in specific college courses. Credit received from CLEP exams at JMU may only be awarded to current ADP students.

The ADP Testing Center administers CLEP exams at the Ice House in Harrisonburg, VA. Due to university-wide closures in response to COVID-19, the ADP Testing Center is currently closed. Please visit the University Response to COVID-19 page for more information on university closures due to COVID-19. 

The following is very important and should be noted as well:

  1. CLEP credits do not count towards the 60 credits from a 4-year institution nor do they count towards the 30 credits from JMU requirements.
  2. CLEP testing must be included in your program of study and approved by your academic advisor.
  3. CLEP credits are posted to your transcript in the semester you passed the exam.
  4. Plan to take CLEP exams early, do not wait until your last semester. 

**Inclement Weather Alert** If the university is closed or delayed due to inclement weather, CLEP exams will be canceled. We will work with you to reschedule for a later date.
