Subject exams are not accepted. Six units of elective credit may be awarded for each examination that a student completes with a score of 500 or higher on the written test or 50 or higher on the computerized test. The CLEP may also be used to fulfill certain Associate Degree general education requirements as listed in the COS General Catalog. Only students who are enrolled and matriculated at College of the Sequoias may receive CLEP credit on a College of the Sequoias' transcript.

Visit the CSU Fresno Testing Services website to obtain information and make arrangements to challenge one or more of the General Examinations. Upon receiving the minimum score, students may petition for credit by submitting the official CLEP Test result to the COS Admissions and Records Office, Sequoia Room 107.
