Minnesota West Policies

Chapter 3 - Educational Policies

3.33 College Level Examination Program

It is the policy of Minnesota West Community & Technical College to award college credit to students who attend Minnesota West Community & Technical College and have achieved the minimum required score as outlined in the equivalency chart on Transferology. Credit may be given for a specific college course if a test covers substantially similar material. If the test material does not match an existing course, students may be given elective credits. Students who have enrolled in a comparable class at Minnesota West or another institution are not eligible to receive credit through CLEP for the same course. Students are provided information on CLEP examination policy and procedures in the college catalog and on the college website.

An equivalency chart for CLEP credit is available at Transferology to assist students in their educational planning. There is no limit to the total number of credits a student may earn through CLEP examinations. Credits earned through CLEP examinations are not resident credits and may not be used to satisfy resident credit requirements for graduation. The Minnesota West - Worthington Campus is a National Test Center for CLEP.  Students can contact Student Services at the Worthington Campus  for cost information and to schedule a test. More information on other test centers and CLEP tests can be found at
