CLEP (The College Level Examination Program)
CLEP (The College Level Examination Program) is a national, standardized testing program that allows students to test and earn college credit. Most General Studies requirements can be met through CLEP unless your major has specific courses required as a part of your general studies. Credit for other, specific MSU Denver courses is also available.
