I'm not able to come in to take my test, how do I reschedule and will get my money back?
All rescheduling will be done the same way scheduling was completed. Reimbursement is NOT promised, and is NOT the responsibility of the Testing Center.
What is CLEP?
The College Board’s College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a widely utilized credit-by-examination program that is accepted by 2,900 colleges and universities and administered in more than 1,800 test centers. The CLEP allows students to earn college credit by demonstrating a mastery of introductory college-level material. Students can earn credit for what they already know by getting qualifying scores on any of the 33 examinations. The CLEP is a wonderful opportunity to receive credit and test out of introductory classes that a student feels they have already mastered.
CLEP tests cost $95 in total; $80 will be paid to CLEP when signing up for the test and $15 will be paid to the testing center for proctor services. On July 1, 2019, the cost will be $89 to be paid to CLEP with the additional $15 to be paid to the testing center, bringing the total to $104.
