CLEP has reorganized its online presence for students and professionals. The new site makes it easier to access the information most useful to you:

Read More +


  • Overview of the CLEP program
  • Descriptions of the 33 exams
  • Tips on building a successful CLEP program at your institution
  • Information on becoming a test center
  • How-tos and best practices for administering CLEP exams
  • Password-protected Resource Center, which includes exam specifications and forms for updating your contact information
  • Schedule and sign-up information for CLEP professional development workshops

During the coming months, we'll be redesigning and restructuring all of the pages on our website so that you can get to the information you need quickly and easily. If you have any thoughts about what you would like to see on the new site, please send them to us at clep@collegeboard.org.

We've also updated two of our print publications to match the look of our new website: the CLEP Take One brochure and the Military Service Members brochure. Order the new brochures from our CLEP downloads and materials web page. We'll be updating additional print publications in the coming months.
