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.
There are two separate fees for the CLEP examination:
- $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.
- $80 per exam - You must go to the CLEP website to pay for your CLEP test. You will be given a voucher which you will bring with you when you test.
CLEP tests are given by appointment only.
To schedule a CLEP exam, call the testing center at 541 881-5799 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The test center is available when the Campus is open and hours for Ontario and Caldwell testing centers can be found HERE.
