The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP)

CLEP testing gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on any of 34 examinations. Earn credit for knowledge you've acquired through independent study, prior course work, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships.

Florida Teacher Certification Exams (FTCE)

The General Knowledge Test (GK) is a test of basic skills and consists of four subtests: Essay, English Language Skills (ELS), Reading, and Mathematics. The subtests consist of multiple-choice questions, except for the Essay subtest, which consists of one essay. The subtests may be registered for separately and taken separately; subtests may be passed at separate administrations to achieve a passing score on the overall test. Learn more here.
