Georgia State University serves as a national test center for CLEP. All CLEP exams (with the exception of essays portions) are administered on the computer.
How to take a College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) exam
Registering for a CLEP exam is a two-step process:
- Register for each CLEP exam that a student wishes through the College Board.
- Register online for each CLEP exam a student wishes to take at the Georgia State University Counseling and Testing Center. The registration with the College Board must be completed first.
Since policies regarding CLEP credits differ at various institutions, candidates should verify which tests are accepted by their institution. Scores are reported to the school(s) designated as the recipient(s) in approximately two to three weeks. (Score reporting for exams that include an essay might take one to two weeks longer.)
Georgia State University students should review the Georgia State University CLEP Policy for Approved CLEP Exams to determine which exams are approved for related courses and the CLEP exams offered through Georgia State University.
Please note: CLEP grades will not affect a student’s G.P.A.
