CLEP Testing Program

Earn college credit for what you already know through this credit-by examination program! Students may register for CLEP exams that can replace specific courses with a passing score.

  • Test fee: $90
  • Administrative fee: $15

Additional details on each test, including study material can be found at clep.collegeboard.org/ and additional information can be found in the Test Taker's Bulletin. Practice Questions for the various CLEP exams can be found here.

Retest Policy

The retest policy states that a candidate may not retake an exam of the same title within three months of the test date. If you violate the CLEP retest policy, the administration will be considered invalid, your score will be cancelled, and any test fees will be forfeited.

If you are repeating an exam of the same title and have a question regarding the date of the initial administration, you should immediately notify the test administrator.

DANTES-funded military examinees are eligible for only one U.S. government-funded attempt per examination title. Any retest attempts for the same examination title must be funded directly by the test taker.
