College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

General Information

CLEP exams are offered at various times on Monday-Friday throughout the school year and summer. CLEP tests are not administered during finals week for both the fall and spring semesters.


**Beginning July 1, 2024, the CLEP registration fee will be $95. Each CLEP test will now be $145 in total, broken down in the following way:

  • A non-refundable $50 registration fee, payable to Liberty University by credit card to reserve a computer.
  • The fee of $95 is charged before students come to Testing Services through the College Board website. 

Registration Procedures

There are three easy steps to taking CLEP exams:

Step 1: When you are ready to take your CLEP exam, go to clep.collegeboard.org and pay for the exam by creating a My Account. The CLEP fee is $95. After you pay, you will need to print your Registration Ticket and bring it with you on the day of your exam.

Step 2: Pay the administrative fee for the exam using the Testing Services Payment Portal.

Step 3: On test day, if you are driving onto campus without a parking decal, you will need to go to the Hancock Welcome Center to obtain a visitor’s pass. Afterward, come to Testing Services with a government form of ID (ID must have a photo and a signature – a driver’s license or passport works great).

Review the Check-In Policies (PDF) before you come to take your exam.

That’s it! After following these three steps, you can take your exam.

Changes, Cancelations, and Retaking Exams

You may change the test you take, as long as it is at your appointed time. If you cannot keep your appointment, you must cancel and re-register by contacting Testing Services at testingservices@liberty.edu.

You must wait at least 3 months to retake a CLEP exam. This is a CLEP requirement.

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) offers a unique opportunity to gain college credit for the knowledge you have acquired. The program includes computer-based tests covering a variety of subjects. Formal study, private reading, on-the-job experience, non-credit courses, business training, television/radio courses, travel, and superior high school courses are just a few ways knowledge is acquired.


Any student (resident, Liberty University Online, high school, home school, and students from other institutions) is eligible to take a CLEP test.

Candidates who score at the 75th percentile or above on either the SAT or the ACT are likely to meet the minimum scores as established by Liberty University. Other candidates who have done extensive reading or who have relative life experience may also profit from the CLEP exams.

Testing at Another Location

It is permissible to take a CLEP test at another location other than Liberty University.

Select Liberty University as your score recipient. After you have completed the test, remember to obtain a printed score report.

Students with Disabilities

Notify the Supervisor of Testing Services at least two weeks in advance if you desire accommodations for a disability. All buildings at Liberty University are handicapped-accessible. Tables and chairs are the standard seating in testing rooms. If your disability requires extra time or assistance to take the exam, you will be given a non-standard administration.

Qualifying for Special Testing Accommodations

To qualify for a non-standard administration, you must provide a current letter from a licensed physician, optometrist, or psychologist (including title, address, and telephone number) on his or her letterhead describing the nature of your disability as it applies to taking a multiple-choice, standardized test, and specific accommodations you will require for testing.
