College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
You can receive credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores
on any of the 33 CLEP examinations. All CLEP exams are Internet-based, allowing
for instant score reports (except for College Compostion), year-round testing,
and "rights-only" scoring--no penalty for guessing.
The "Get Started" link will connect you to the CLEP site where you can create an account that will enable you to register for a CLEP exam and pay your exam fee. Get Started with CLEP
No CLEP credit will be awarded by Chipola College for any course in which a student has previously been enrolled or earned credit. You may not repeat an exam of the same title within six months of the initial testing date. If you retake the exam within the six-month period, your administration will be considered invalid, your scores will be canceled and all test fees will be forfeited.
CLEP exams are offered Monday through Thursday between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. You must register for CLEP exams at https://clepportal.collegeboard.org/myaccount. Make sure to print your registration ticket to present to the testing center staff on your test date. After you have registered online, you must contact the Testing Center to make a testing appointment. The CLEP will NOT be offered during college registration dates which are listed on the Chipola College calendar. You must show an acceptable ID and pay a $15.00 administration fee at the Testing Center (Bldg. A) when you arrive to take the test.
Each candidate must present one form of identification.The ID must be a government-issued photo ID. The ID must be valid and current, must bear the test-taker's full name in English language characters, and must contain a photograph and a signature. Acceptable forms of identification include:
- A valid driver's license
- A current state or federal ID card
- A military ID
- A current passport
- A naturalization card or certificate of citizenship
- A national ID card
You will be required to pay for your exam during the CLEP registration process. Your registration ticket will contain a voucher number that you must present as proof of payment at the time of testing. The Testing Center also requires $15.00 cash, check, or money order payable to Chipola College for each exam.
