CLEP

 

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests are administered in the Purdue Testing Center year-round by appointment.

All CLEP exams are 90 minutes long, but appointments are set for two hours to allow for administrative time. Availability may vary, but appointments can typically be made during the following times:

Monday 8:30 am – 2:30 pm
Tuesday 8:30 am – 2:30 pm
Wednesday 12:30 – 6:30 pm
Thursday 12:30 – 6:30 pm
Friday 8:30 am – 2:30 pm

To take a CLEP test at the PTC, please follow the instructions in the CLEP Checklist.

The cost per CLEP exam (paid to the College Board) is currently $89, effective July 1st, 2019.

Additionally, Purdue requires an administrative fee for credit by exam courses. The fee is $35 for current Purdue students and $55 for non-students.

Please be sure you will be ready and able to attend at the time you select for your appointment. The credit by exam fee is non-refundable, and your invoice number will be associated with your appointment. If you no-show, cancel, or reschedule your appointment, you will forfeit the fee.

For a list of CLEP exams currently accepted by Purdue, please visit the Undergraduate Admissions Transfer Credit site.

CLEP scores are provided onscreen immediately upon completion of the exam, and you will be provided with a printed score report. (There is an exception for College Composition exams. CLEP essays are scored twice per month, so College Composition scores will be provided 2-3 weeks after testing.) Once you have received a passing score, you will be able to drop or add courses as needed. However, it may take 2-3 weeks for the CLEP credit to appear on your transcript.

For more information, please visit the College Board website.
