The Main Campus Testing Center at Central Carolina Technical College is pleased to announce two exams which will allow us to award exemption credit for knowledge demonstrated as a result of non-traditional learning experience. The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) tests listed in the CLEP Brochure or DANTES Brochure may be taken and credit will be awarded provided the appropriate scores are attained. It is the student’s responsibility to request his/her official scores on the CLEP and DANTES tests be sent to Student Records. The Registrar will evaluate and award the appropriate credit.

Benefits of CLEP & DANTES for our CCTC Students:

  • Reduced student aid debt/loan amount
  • Quicker progression to higher-level courses
