TEST  PREP  OPTIONS

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

*** CHECK the CollegeBoard website for testing and COVID-19 updates.  Review the website AND your email accounts for local test center updates/closures***

CLEP exams are created and administered by College Board.   You may receive college credit for what you already know, for a fraction of the cost of a college course. You can prepare for and take the exams on your own time, whether you’re getting a head start on college or working to finish your degree.

  • Save money. A CLEP exam costs $89 (plus testing center administrative fee).
  • Earn college credit. A passing score on a CLEP exam can earn you three or more college credits.
  • Save time. With CLEP exams you can place out of introductory courses and move more quickly towards your major or other areas of study.

Net Price Calculator

Colleges are required to post a Net Price Calculator on their website to help students estimate their net price of attendance (sticker/published price minus grants, scholarships, and education tax benefits).  Students can use this tool either before or after they apply to get a better picture of their cost of attendance (COA).  Here’s the link to the College Board’s explanation of Net Price Calculator:  https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org/pay-for-college/paying-your-share/focus-on-net-price-not-sticker-price.

Other Resources

The College Tour (https://www.thecollegetour.com/)

 

A great new resource for your college searches: The College Tour (https://www.thecollegetour.com/).  This website gives you a tour of campus, talks about the surrounding town or city, and talks about what is unique about that school.  While it does not have all the colleges in the US, they are consistently adding more each season of the show.  The great thing about this resource is that you can choose to watch the whole episode through (it is about an hour per school), or you can choose to watch segments from the episode and learn specifics you are interested in.

You can either download the The College Tour App to your phone or tablet here or watch it on your computer through the link above.  Check it out and explore what it has to offer, who knows, it may pique your interest in a school you were not thinking about!
