Good to Know: CLEP Retake Policy

If your student fails their CLEP, you might want to try again!

  • Modern State’s voucher program DOES ALLOW you to get another voucher if your student fails their CLEP exam.
  • College Board requires you wait 3 months (to the day) before your next attempt.
  • Failed CLEP scores are not on your official College Board CLEP transcript.
  • Failed CLEP scores are confidential unless you’ve elected to have your score sent to the college directly. This is a question you have to answer on exam day (where do you want your score sent?) and our advice is to select NO COLLEGE.

CLEP Retest Policy

Test takers may not repeat an exam of the same title within three months of the initial testing date. If you retake the exam within the three-month period, your administration will be considered invalid, your score will be canceled, and any test fees will be forfeited.

If you’re repeating an exam of the same title and have a question regarding the date of the initial administration, you should immediately notify the test administrator and contact CLEP Services at 800-257-9558.

Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES)-funded military test takers are eligible for only one U.S. government-funded attempt per exam title. Any retest attempts for the same exam must be funded directly by the test taker.
