Good to Know: CLEP Accommodations

YES! CLEP allows you to take accommodations when your student has disabilities.

Accommodations for Students with Disabilities

Accommodations are arranged between you and your testing center

If your accommodation requires something NOT on this list, do not register- contact CLEP (below) for more information.

If you have a learning or physical disability that would prevent you from taking a CLEP exam under standard conditions, you may request accommodations at your preferred test center. Contact your preferred test center well in advance of the test date to make the necessary arrangements and to find out its deadline for submission of documentation for approval of accommodations. Accommodations that can be arranged directly with test centers include:

  • ZoomText (screen magnification)
  • Modifiable screen colors
  • Use of a reader, an amanuensis, or a sign language interpreter
  • Extended time
  • Untimed rest breaks

If the above accommodations do not meet your needs, contact CLEP Services (or at 800-257-9558) for information about other nonstandard options before you register through My Account.
