It’s too hard.
Sometimes people give up before they even try something – because they are scared to fail. But the only sure way to fail, is not to try. Besides, we offer a pass or don’t pay guarantee that ensures that you have nothing to lose, but seat time!
It will take me too long.
If you pick a subject that you are interested in, or have previous experience in, then studying for a CLEP test won’t take you long at all. Let’s say you are interested in history. You probably already know quite a bit of facts and let’s be honest, when you work on something that you are interested in, it doesn’t really seem like work, does it?
It’s too expensive.
A CLEP test costs about $80 plus a testing center fee (depending on your location). That is a lot of money. However, when you look at how much it costs for tuition, text books, parking on campus, gas driving to campus, the time you spend in the classroom, it’s really not as much as you’d think. I would much rather spend $80 then sit in a classroom for three to four hours a week for a few months.
I’m not a good student.
You can be anything you put your mind to. If you start with one subject and study it start to finish, you will be able to pass your CLEP test and test out. You don’t have to be the best writer or the best test taker. On average, to pass a CLEP test, you only need to get about 50% correct to pass. That’s a plus in my book!
My school doesn’t accept it.
You might think that you school doesn’t accept it, just because you have never heard of it. Like all underappreciated programs, CLEP is just not very well promoted. You probably heard about it from a friend of a friend. There are easy ways to tell if your school accepts CLEP. First check online at XXXXX. Even if they are not listed, the may accept allow a A.S. degree to transfer to a B.S. program. Which means you can get your two year degree at a school that DOES allow CLEP, so you will complete it much quicker and cheaper and then transfer to a school that may not accept CLEP, but will accept your degree.Tricky eh??
Taking a class is easier.
There are some people who are just a little lazy and not self-motivated. You don’t have to be that person! If you can motivate yourself to get to class on time and get your homework turned in, you can definitely motivate yourself to start and complete a study schedule. And we even have one you can use for free.
