Parent Question: How do I find when and where CLEP tests are administered?

Perfect newbie question! You can take your CLEP at home or at an approved testing center.

Approved testing centers use their own business hours, so “when” is up to those hours. It’s an on demand test, so you’ll schedule it within your family’s schedule and the testing center’s hours.

The at-home remote option can be as early as tomorrow- they offer it every 3 hours 24/7/365.

No matter which option you choose, there is a fee associated with proctoring the exam that you’ll pay either to your testing center directly, or through the registration process when scheduling an at-home version (proctored remotely via webcam). Expect this fee to be between $20-$40. Since the test is the same, you should call around and compare prices. WHERE you take your exam makes no difference, and you may find the cost varies significantly!

Don’t forget, the cost of your CLEP and your testing fees can be ZERO $0 if you go through the free Modern States prep first. Take a CLEP for free!

Under age 13? CLEP and AP are still options.

The U.S. Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) requires website operators to obtain parent or guardian consent before collecting personal information from children under 13 years of age. That’s no problem, once you get the form on file, your tween is good to go!
