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!

“Which college classes should my high school student should take?” and “How can I make sure they will transfer later?” are the two top questions I answer in emails or our many Facebook groups. College credit in high school is rarely guaranteed to transfer, but if you use the same filters I use when picking…
