The College Level Examination Program allows students who have gained knowledge through independent study, advanced high school courses, noncredit adult courses, and/or professional development to take examinations for possible college credit. Depending on a college’s CLEP policy, a satisfactory score on each CLEP exam can earn students up to 12 credits.
College Board offers 33 CLEP exams which are representative of courses typically offered in a student’s first two years of college.
Wisconsin’s youth options program allows public high school juniors and seniors who meet certain requirements to take post-secondary courses at a UW institution, a Wisconsin technical college, one of the state’s participating private nonprofit institutions of higher education, or tribally-controlled colleges. Approved courses count toward high school graduation and college credit.
The program opens the door to greater learning opportunities for motivated students considering a technical career, wishing to begin college early, or preparing themselves to enter the workforce immediately after high school graduation.
Under youth options, a student does not pay for a college course if the school board determines the course qualifies for high school credit and is not comparable to a course already offered in the school district. If approved by the school board, the student can receive both high school and college credit upon successful completion of the course. A student who successfully completes their high school graduation requirements earns a high school diploma regardless of whether the requirements were met while attending a high school or college.
