COVID-19 Update

St. Edward's University will be administering CLEP and DSST exams during the Summer 2021 semester. Due to social distancing guidelines and physical constraints in our testing facility, we will only be administering exams for students of St. Edward's while prioritizing seniors and students close to graduation. If you are not a student of St. Edward's and need to take a CLEP exam, the closest testing facilities are Texas State University's Round Rock location and San Marcos location. If you are not located in the Austin area, find another testing facility

Credit by Exam and Placement Testing

The university participates in the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), which is administered by the College Entrance Examination Board. Credit also is granted through the Defense Activity for Nontraditional Education Support (DANTES), a program made available by the Education Testing Service (ETS).

Credit granted by examination is applicable to a St. Edward’s University degree program but may not necessarily be transferable to another institution. Examination credit counts in neither the residence hours nor honors calculations. It is necessary to make arrangements to complete all CLEP, DSST, PEP and challenge exams prior to certification for graduation. All examination credit appears on the transcript as CR and does not affect the GPA in any way.

The Testing Center at St. Edward’s University offers a variety of exams for students and members of the community here on campus:
