Do CLEP exams count as credit at all state or public universities?
I’d check with the specific Us you are thinking of attending as to their CLEP policies. Back in the day Many decades ago, U of HI accepted both the psychology CLEP and gave a Spanish placement test to give me a lot of extra credits. I know Us vary as to how many credits you can get from APs and from taking college courses while in HS. The private college our S attended capped the # of credits you could enter with as a freshman at 60.
Check with each university’s website - most universities will accept certain scores, but they accept different minimum scores and only certain exams. It varies with the school.
