Hello Scholar,

What are you doing during the summer?

We want to encourage you to take advantage of a great opportunity offered by Modern States to help you save money and graduate faster!

Modern States offers tuition-free online courses taught by university professors to prepare you for the College Board (CLEP) exams. You can take a Modern States class, pass the CLEP exam, and earn college credits at your college instead of paying for the same class on campus!  

"I thought the course was great…I ended up paying nothing and got a total of 9 credits!"

Patricia, TheDream.US Scholar


In addition you can get paid up to $150 per eligible Modern States course you take and CLEP exam you pass! That’s right – Modern States will offer you a free class and pay you to take it! 

For details and to register, go here.


A CLARIFICATION: This program is open to all TheDream.US Scholars even though the Modern States website says it is open only to NY students.

KEEP IN MIND: Not all colleges accept all CLEP exam credits. Before starting, check with your Scholar Advisor or on your college website to make sure your college will accept the CLEP credits for the course you plan to take. You can also check here.

IMPORTANT: When you sign-up identify yourself as a TheDream.US Scholar in the high school question and enter your App ID, found in your ISTS Portal.

We urge you to take advantage of this fantastic resource to save you money and time!
