Dear Parents and Students:

 

Denham Springs High School will begin offering CLEP testing for individual students starting in February. The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) offers students the opportunity to receive college credit for what they already know by earning qualifying scores on any of the offered exams. Each test is 90 minutes in length, given in a computer based format on our campus, and results are given at its completion. While there are a number of tests available, we recommend students take tests for courses in which they are currently enrolled. In the future, we hope to offer testing sessions for students that would like to review the material before taking the exam.

Before taking a test, we recommend students and parents learn more about which CLEP credit is accepted by the prospective college.  Refer to the college website to confirm the score you need to receive college credit or visit the following link to get more information: https://clep.collegeboard.org/started.  Please check college acceptance of a particular test before enrolling.

We will be offering specific CLEP test for students enrolled in the following courses and information will be sent through the class on how to sign up:
