Do I have to use CLEP Results on my Homeschool Transcript?

Do you have to use CLEP on your transcript if you don't want to?"

~Lisa

Dear Lisa,

You have SO MUCH freedom about your own personal homeschool transcript!  You can certainly leave CLEP tests off your transcript if you want to!

Chapter 5 ofmy homeschool transcript e-book talks about how college courses can be used for college credit - and that is what a CLEP exam is.  Chapter 9 talks about how your homeschool transcript is the academic clearing house for all the educational experiences of your child.  That chapter talks about putting CLEP tests on your transcript if you want to.

If your child takes a CLEP exam and passes it, you may want to use that score as outside documentation - proof of your homeschool courses and rigor.  When my child passed a CLEP exam, I gave them the "honors" designation on their transcript" but I didn't change their grade.  A passing CLEP earned a 4.0 on my transcript.

If your child takes and does NOT pass a CLEP exam, you may choose to leave that off a transcript.  No harm, no foul.  But if they pass, then it seems to me including the CLEP can only strengthen the portfolio of your child.  A passing grade can show that your child attempted a college level course and succeeded!

Sue,
My advice is that you don't take the test for real unless you are sure he can pass. Having a passing score helps, but it's not necessary.

thanks Lee. He took the practice test and scored just under passing. I have been on the fence about it....

Sue,
When your child takes the test, you can choose ahead of time to send the score or not send the score. If you send scores later, after you know they pass, it costs more money. Here's my tips: be SURE they will pass first, by making sure they get a good score at home on a sample test. And if you feel insecure at all, don't submit scores until you see them - it's worth the extra money.
Blessings,
Lee

If your child takes and does NOT pass a CLEP exam, does the college board report that to colleges that the child applies to?
Thanks.
