Max Number of CLEP Exams?

I've heard that CLEP exams can be a solid way to earn college credits before even stepping foot on campus. But, what's the max number of CLEP exams I could take? Want to make sure I don't overdo it alongside my high school coursework.

It's great that you're being proactive about earning college credits! The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) can indeed be a strategic way to gain credit and potentially save on college costs. The maximum number of CLEP exams you can take is really up to your own schedule and the policies of the college you plan on attending.

Each college sets its own policy regarding the amount of credit you can earn through CLEP, so it's important to check with the specific institutions you're interested in. Generally, there's no limit to how many CLEP exams you can take. Still, I recommend focusing on subjects where you're confident and perhaps choosing exams that align with your future major or interests.

Don't forget to balance your studying with your high school courses to avoid burnout. Best of luck!
