Steps to CLEP Home Proctoring

Last fall, I took a CLEP from home and wrote a review on how it went. Since then, my daughter has taken three CLEPs from home. Do we love the convenience? Yes! Have there been issues. A few. Today I will share the steps you can follow to take a CLEP at home for FREE!

7 Steps to Free* CLEP Home Proctoring

1. Create an account at  and enroll in a class from the catalog.

2. Complete the course.

  • A course is considered “complete” when all of the practice questions have been answered. Course resources include videos with transcripts and a textbook.
  • Progress in the class can be viewed by choosing the progress tab at the top of the screen.

3. Request a voucher when you’ve completed 100% of the course.

  • You will need to upload a screenshot of your course progress. In a few days, you should receive an email from Modern States with the voucher code.

4. Register for the CLEP exam using the voucher number you receive.

  • Add the voucher number at the checkout and make sure you choose remote proctoring. Your total will be $0. 

*If you do not want to take the Modern States course, you can purchase the CLEP yourself and start with the steps below.

After you register for the CLEP, you will receive an email from the College Board with these remaining instructions.

5.  Schedule your remote proctored exam with Proctortrack.

  • Go to the Proctortrack website.
  • Create your Proctortrack account with your ticket ID.
  • Receive an email from Proctortrack to confirm your account
  • Schedule your exam appointment. To schedule, log in to your Proctortrack dashboard, click on the schedule bottom, and select a preferred date and time. You will receive a confirmation email. (Note from Jenny: this email is not always immediate. One of our confirmations came days after we scheduled and hours before the exam.)
  • If you no longer want to test at home, you must contact CLEP Services at 800-257-9558 and log in to Proctortrack to cancel your scheduled exam appointment.
  • If you need to reschedule, you can do so by logging in to Proctortrack up to one hour before your scheduled appointment.

6.  Make sure you meet all equipment and environment requirements. If you don’t, you won’t be able to test.

7.  Confirm that the information on your CLEP exam registration ticket matches the information on your ID.

On Test Day

  • Have your government-issued ID ready. View ID requirements.
  • Log in to Proctortrack at your scheduled appointment time.
  • Once logged in, click on the Confirmed button to start your testing process.


Turn off your firewall for the test. It may block the proctor’s access to your computer. This happened to my daughter and they stopped the test, directed her to turn off the firewall, and then allowed her to proceed. Fortunately, the test started where she left off and, although she passed, it did break her concentration.
