COLLEGE LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CLEP)
Please note the following guidelines, restrictions, and policies as they relate to CLEP testing.
1. First, you must go to https://clepportal.collegeboard.org/myaccount. There you will actually register and pay for the CLEP test(s) you want to take. You will also identify the test center where you wish to take the exam(s). Once you have created your registration ticket, be sure to print it out. You must bring it to the testing center when it’s time for your test.
NOTE: As you complete your CLEP registration, be very sure to fill in the identifying information completely AND accurately. The name on your CLEP registration ticket MUST MATCH exactly the name on your government-issued photo identification (driver’s license or passport). If the names do not match, you will not be allowed to test.
2. Once you have registered with CLEP “my account,” call the testing center (678-839-
6435) to find out when CLEP testing is available. Choose the date and time that best fits your schedule; at that point, you have 4 business days to pay the $15 CLEP service fee (cash or check payable to UWG) to reserve your space. This service fee is non- refundable and non-transferable.
NOTE: Although we would like to schedule examinees on the date and at the time of their choosing, there are many times when CLEP testing is not available because of other testing commitments (for example, during finals week, during orientation sessions, etc). Please accept the fact that we are not available to do CLEP testing on demand.
3. Arrive at the testing center 15 minutes early in order to check in with your CLEP registration ticket and your photo identification. Should you arrive without your ticket and/or not have the required identification and/or have a ticket which doesn’t contain matching information with the ID, you will not be eligible to test.
NOTE: Your ID must be government-issued and contain a photo and a signature. Appropriate types are a current passport, current driver’s license, or current military ID. Home-schooled examinees and students without a form of ID identified above must contact the testing office regarding the use of a CLEP-approved notarized identification form.
NOTE: Credit/debit cards, social security cards, student ID’s, and employee ID’s are not acceptable forms of ID.
NOTE: Do NOT bring anything to the testing center other than your registration ticket and your ID. Everything else should be left in your car or some other secured location. The testing office is not responsible for your personal possessions.
