The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) offers students the opportunity to obtain college credit by examination.
- CLEP exams are administered in the CLEP Testing Center which is located in the Paschal Student Union Center, first floor (across from the mailboxes). If you arrive prior to the scheduled time of your exam and the door to the Testing Center is closed, please wait in the lobby area. When the Test Administrator is ready to begin admitting test takers, you will be directed to the testing room.
- Cell phones must be powered OFF, not on silent or vibrate, during the times portion of the exam. If a cell phone sounds (rings or vibrates) during the exam, the test taker will immediately be dismissed, his/her exam cancelled, and a refund will not be available.
- The deadline to register for a CLEP exam is 2 days prior to the testing date.
- Registration is limited to 2 test-takers per scheduled exam date.
- Test takers arriving 10 minutes or more after the start of their scheduled exam time WILL NOT BE ADMITTED FOR TESTING.
- CLEP exams are 90-minutes and administered on the computers in BMC’s Testing Center. Please allow at least 2 hours to take a CLEP exam. Scores will be revealed immediately upon completion of the exam.
- Only one CLEP exam can be taken per testing date. Tests will be given at 9:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Exams are given on the following dates:
- The fee for each CLEP exam is $80.00. Test fees are payable through CLEP’s My Account registration portal. You will need to obtain a registration ticket issued by CLEP and present it to us before you will be able to take the test in our facility.
- Test Administration fee:
