CLEP exams are a convenient way for students to demonstrate mastery of introductory college-level material in order to earn college credit. There are currently 33 exams to choose from. Please visit College Board’s Exams page for a current list of CLEP exams.
We recommend that students meet with their advisor prior to registering for a CLEP exam to ensure that this is an appropriate option as each institution has their own CLEP policy. Students who wish to retest for a CLEP exam can do so after 3 months.
How to register to take a CLEP exam:
- Go to collegeboard.org to register and purchase a ticket for the CLEP exam.
- Maintain a copy of your purchased CLEP ticket to bring with you on test day.
- Register and pay for an appointment to take the CLEP exam at NWF State College.
- Bring a valid government issued ID and the CLEP ticket with you on exam day.
For Active Duty Military
CLEP exams for active duty are funded through DANTES (Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support). Active Duty Military are eligible to sit and take CLEP exams for free at our Hurlburt AFB testing location.
This is a free one-time opportunity to test per subject, with no sitting or administrative fee. If the tester does not pass on the first attempt, there is a 3-month wait period to retest at the regular price.
