The College-Level Examination Program gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know. CLEP helps students:
Nashua CC is an approved CLEP testing site. Effective October 11, 2013 our administrative fee per test is $25.
Our college awards credits to students who achieve a score of 50 or better on the following tests:

Successful completion of a CLEP exam is treated as a transfer credit. Students may not receive CLEP credits for a course they have attempted and failed. Students cannot be registered for a class when they are taking a CLEP test for that class. If a student does not pass a CLEP test, he/she must wait six months to take it again. Students will need to request that a copy of their scores be sent to Nashua CC for review. This request is made to the College Board during or after the exam.
