CLEP Testing Information

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Before registering for a CLEP exam, check with an advisor at your college/university to determine whether CLEP credits will be accepted for your degree requirements. TVCC administers all CLEP exams; however, not all exams are accepted by TVCC. A student transferring to any four-year institution or another community college should check with that institution to determine whether CLEP credits will be accepted.

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) gives you the opportunity to earn college credit for knowledge you have obtained through professional experience, prior academic study, and/or independent study. CLEP examinations are offered in several academic subjects.  Each exam is 90 minutes long.

CLEP Exams Accepted by TVCC

Fees

There are two separate fees for the CLEP examination:

  1. $15 per exam - payable to TVCC for proctoring this test. If you are taking an exam with an optional essay, there is an additional $10 fee. Please pay this fee in the Student Services Center prior to the reporting to the Test Center.

  2. $85 per exam - You must go to the CLEP website (www.clep.collegeboard.org) to pay for your CLEP test. You will be given a voucher which you will need to bring with you when you test.
