No credit is given for the College Mathematics CLEP Exam. 

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a national system of credit by examination.  To view UA information for CLEP exams, see the UA Policy for CLEP Credit

Note that the University will not award credit for a CLEP exam if you already have credit for a higher level math course.

What do I need to do to add the next UA Math course based on my Math credit? If your credits are not in the UA system, make sure you send an unofficial score report to the Math Placement Office.

If you haven’t already, send an Official Score Report to the UA Registrar through the College Board CLEP Program site. 

It is the student's responsibility to make sure they are enrolled in the correct UA Math course after CLEP credits are processed into the UA system. Students can contact the Math Placement Office for additional information.
