CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) 

The College-Level Examination Program is a national program of credit that allows students to obtain recognition for college-level achievement. The Center for Testing is an open CLEP test center and can administer all CLEP examinations to anyone who properly registers. However, each institution determines which exams are accepted and what minimum scores are required for credit. For information on GC's CLEP policy, click here. If you desire credit at another institution, check that institution's policies before testing.

GC awards credit through CLEP for the courses listed below. The acceptable scores for credit and semester hours awarded are as indicated. A "K" grade will be awarded for CLEP credit. This grade will not affect your grade point average but will count toward total hours and will fulfill degree requirements. The score recipient code for GC is 5252.


You will register for a CLEP exam through the College Board My Account registration portal. The current cost of a CLEP exam is $80. The My Account portal will also allow you to manage your personal information, search for test centers, select your score recipient institution and purchase study materials. 

After you register for an exam and receive your registration ticket, you will schedule a test appointment with the Center for Testing. CLEP exams are generally administered two or three afternoons per week at 1 p.m. and at 3 p.m. There are a limited number of seats available at each time. You will select a test date and time and pay the nonrefundable test center fee of $25 through our online registration service. Payment options are Visa or MasterCard. To register click here and follow the instructions.


All tests will be administered in the Center for Testing computer lab in 140 Lanier Hall. Allow about two hours for the test.

You must bring one government-issued photo ID with signature and your registration ticket. The ID must be valid and current (not expired) and be an original document (not photocopied).  A driver's license, state or federal-issued ID, passport, or military ID are some of the acceptable forms of ID. All DANTES-funded military candidates must provide a current military ID. 

School, work, or employee ID's are NOT acceptable. 

 NOTE: The first and last names on the ID must match that on the Registration Ticket.

If you have any questions about what is or is not an acceptable form of identification, contact CLEP Services at 800-257-9558 or 212-237-1331 or visit the CLEP website.

You may not take calculators, books, papers, notes, mechanical pencils or any type of pen, cell phones, cameras, recording devices, pagers, digital watches, alarm watches or any reference materials, food or beverages into the testing room. You may not wear or take a hat with a bill or a brim into the testing room. We recommend that you not bring these items to your test session because storage space is very limited.  


You may reschedule a test session without additional charge one time if you contact the testing office at 478-445-5016 at least one week before your original session. Otherwise, you must pay the $25 fee to schedule another test date.


For questions concerning GC's approved CLEP tests and passing scores or test dates and registration, contact the Center for Testing, 100 Lanier Hall or call 478-445-5016. Additional information about CLEP tests, including study resources, can be found at the CLEP website.
