CLEP me out of here: life hacks for college credit
Track: Higher Education Track (Sponsored by The College Board)
This program demonstrates the value for service members and veterans of using the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) to decrease the cost of higher education, reduce time spent in the classroom, and increase degree completion. The program will provide an overview of CLEP, explain how CLEP is funded by the military and the GI Bill changes, and highlight two recent research reports. These research reports show that college completion rates are significantly higher for service members and veterans who pass just one CLEP test and that students who pass a CLEP test perform as well or better than their peers in later courses. Finally, we will provide several practical examples of accelerated degree pathways.
