10 The college -Level examination Program ( clep ) may be a good choice for non-traditional students who are looking to begin a college career without taking the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT, as most soon-to-be college students do. The clep can also be useful for current college students looking to save on the overwhelming cost of earning a degree. The clep is designed to allow prospective, non-traditional college students the opportunity to demonstrate that they have the academic abilities to be successful in a college classroom. It is also designed to help students already enrolled in college to potentially test out of certain courses.
