CLEP Exams

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a widely accepted credit-by-exam program in the United States. CLEP exams allow a person to demonstrate knowledge that has been acquired through independent study, academic interests, or on-the-job training.

TCC's Northeast Campus is a CLEP test center, providing service to students and the community. Each college sets its own policy regarding how much credit and for which courses credit will be given. Before registering for a CLEP exam, it is the examinee's responsibility to find out the following information:

  • Does the college you are reporting the scores to recognize CLEP exams?
  • What score is needed to receive credit(s) at the college you are reporting your score to?
  • Are there additional requirements before credit is granted at the receiving institution?

Test Preparation

The Official Study Guide for CLEP Exams contains descriptions of all CLEP exams, sample exam questions and answers, test preparation in every subject, test-taking strategies and general information about CLEP.

The Guide may be purchased through College Board by calling (800) 323-7155. Cost is approximately $25 plus postage. You may view College Board's website for CLEP preparation and for further information.

Registration

Pre-registration and payment must be completed online. Once payment and registration are completed, you will need to schedule an appointment and bring your Exam Registration Ticket to the Northeast Campus Testing Center.

Administration of CLEP exams is available on a limited basis by appointment only. CLEP examinees must present one form of government-issued identification upon check-in at the Testing Center (i.e. driver's license, passport, state ID, etc.) to be eligible to take the exam. The primary identification must be valid and current, must bear the test-taker's full name in English language characters and must include a photograph and a signature. A copy of the photo ID will be kept on file in the Testing Center. Please refer to the CLEP site for all acceptable forms of identification.
