What if you just pass the CLEP exam let’s say with the score of 50? Does that mean that you are given the college credit for that class but are also given a C on the college transcript like on an AP test? My daughter is studying for her first CLEP and I want this figured out before we put the time and money in to it.
Thanks for your help,
Hi Lisa, each school has its own CLEP policy, most use the ACE B-Level Recommendations. See http://professionals.collegeboard.com/testing/clep/scores/recommendations for more info.
With that being said, most colleges do NOT award college grades for CLEP credits. There are two schools of thought on this topic. Some people want the grade and some people don't care. I'm in the don't care group, because if anything it pads your GPA. You have 40+ classes you have to take towards your bachelors degree so if that's one less class your daughter has to stress about getting an A, then the more the better!
If that's your only hang up, then my advice is to TAKE THE EXAM. For $100 you can get 3 college credits that would cost you about $800 at a public universities or $1,600 at a private universities. This is math class 101

Have you ever considered hiring a college coach?
In 2017, the average cost to hire a college coach was between $4000 and $6000. And some cost more... much more! Avery was taken aback when she saw a college admission coach advertising services for $70,000. Most homeschoolers don't have that kind of money. Which is why Avery was so shocked.
