CLEP (College-Level Examination Program)
The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for your comprehensive subject knowledge acquired through independent or prior study, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships.
For more information visit the College Board CLEP website.
Test Fees and Procedures
CLEP exams are $80.00 per test payable on-line by credit card, or by personal check or money order. There is a $15.00 registration fee payable at http://www.ius.edu/sdc/article/SDC_Online_Payment_Options. Please bring the registration payment receipt to your test session. Please call the Student Development Center at (812) 941-2312 to register for a test appointment.
CLEP for Active Duty Military Personnel and Veterans
The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs reimburses eligible military personnel for the $80.00 CLEP fee. The following references will help you determine your eligibility.
Candidates receive immediate test results at the end of the testing session. Score reports can be generated for anyone who has tested within the last 30 days.
If you do not receive a passing score, you may take the test again after 180 days. Please do not attempt to take the test before 180 days have passed, because your test will be invalid, and any fees you pay will not be refunded. A date calculator can help determine when you may retake a test.
Important Policy for Business Majors
Business majors at IU Southeast may not earn special credit for any of the CLEP business or economics exams; however, business majors may earn special credit for a maximum of three (3) non-business, general education CLEP exams. Please talk to your advisor to see how this policy might affect your degree.
