CLEP Exams

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) allows students to test out of subjects by demonstrating proficiency on CLEP exams. Students study independently and schedule their exams through Gonzaga or another testing center. If you do not pass a CLEP exam, you must wait three months to re-take it. This penalty is incurred regardless of whether or not you report your scores.

The testing center is able to administer all CLEP exams. Below are the subjects that are prerequisites in Gonzaga's MBA, MAcc, and MSTax programs.


Passing Score

Management 50 = 72% retention
Marketing 50 = 72% retention
Business Law 50 = 72% retention
Management Information Systems 50 = 72% retention
Macroeconomics 50 = 72% retention
Microeconomics 50 = 72% retention 

Proficiency Exams

Proficiency exams are designed specifically for Gonzaga students to satisfy MBA, MAcc, and MSTax prerequisites and will not act as transfer credit to other universities. These exams may only be attempted once. Students who do not pass will be required to complete the applicable prerequisite courses.
