CLEP

REGISTERING FOR AND SCHEDULING A CLEP TEST

Registering for a CLEP exam is a two-step process that requires two separate payments. The total cost for a CLEP exam = $119.00.

Step 1:

Test takers must create a personal account through the CLEP My Account registration portal. This account can be used to select the exam(s) you intend to take and pay the $89 CLEP exam fee. 

Step 2:

Once you have registered with CLEP, please visit the CLEP test dates list and select a first choice and alternate test dates and times.

NOTE:  You may only take one test per exam time.  If you wish to take two exams on any given date, you will need to register for both the 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. sessions, and you are required to pay the test administration fee for each session.  You may also be required to select an alternate test date if there are not available seats in each section.

NOTE:  If you are taking an exam that is longer than 90 minutes, or if you require, and CLEP has approved, special accommodations, you MUST select a 1:00 p.m. test session.

You will then e-mail your CLEP exam registration ticket to Buffalo State, Continuing Professional Studies, clep@buffalostate.edu.

In the e-mail, please indicate your first and alternate choice dates/times to sit for the exam.  Please also include your phone number in the e-mail.  NOTE:  If you are taking an exam that is longer than 90 minutes, or if you require, and CLEP has approved, special accommodations, you MUST ADVISE US in this email.

Your scheduled date and time will be confirmed via return email, at which time you will also receive the link to the payment window.

Pay the Administrative fee:  PayPal is the only form of payment.  The fee is $30 and is NONREFUNDABLE.  You cannot sit for the exam without paying the administrative fee. 

It is IMPERATIVE that you complete the above process with Buffalo State 48 hours in advance of your chosen date, and that you receive an email confirmation from us regarding confirmation of your registration, as well as the currently mandated COVID-19 directives that you will be required to comply with.

 

CLEP TESTING PROCEDURES HAVE CHANGED; PLEASE READ!

Any and all current COVID-19 directives will be in place, regarding social distancing and masking. Failure to comply with COVID-19 postings and directives may result in your removal from the testing center and the forfeiting of your testing administrative fee.

SPECIAL NOTES FOR CLEP TESTS LONGER THAN 90 MINUTES:

1.  YOU MUST REGISTER FOR THE 1:00 P.M. SESSION IN ORDER FOR US TO MEET SOCIAL DISTANCING AND SANITIZATION REQUIREMENTS.

We reserve the right to cancel any testing date/session should issues related to the pandemic or college operations arise.  If it is necessary for us to cancel any session, you will notified via the email address you provided at registration.  You will be given priority registration for any future testing session as soon as testing is able to resume.
