Parent Question: Do my kids need an IDs for at-home CLEP exams?

Yes, the ID requirements are the same. Your kids will need government-issued IDs for CLEP exams no matter where they are taken. Read more below.

Be sure to read the full 16-page Official CLEP Information Guide here (2021-2022)

Bring the following to the test center or your remote proctoring appointment:

  • Acceptable identification must:
  • Be government issued.
  • Be an original document—photocopied documents aren’t acceptable.
  • Be valid and current—expired documents aren’t acceptable, no matter how recently they may have expired.
  • Bear the test taker’s full name, in English language characters, exactly as it appears on the Registration Ticket, including the order of the names. Middle initials are optional and only need to match the first letter of the middle name on both the ticket and the identification.
  • Bear a recent recognizable photograph that clearly matches the test taker.
  • Include the test taker’s signature.
  • Be in good condition, with clearly legible text and a clearly visible photograph.
