College Level Examination Program Test
The CLEP is used to obtain recognition for college level learning. Depending on the results of your tests you may be granted academic credit, waive prerequisite requirements, allow you to begin your college education at an advanced or intermediate level, or verify requirements for certification, licensing, or promotion.
Educational Testing Service does not grant credit. You will need to check directly with the institution to verify if they will grant credit on the results of your tests.
The University of New Mexico offers the National CLEP examination. CLEP examinations are Computer Based exams. Examinees must schedule an appointment in person at the testing Center. Seating is limited per date so early registration is recommended. If you cannot make your scheduled appointment please call to cancel and/or to reschedule, otherwise you will be charged the $15 registration fee to make a new appointment.
On the day of the test, examinees will need to bring a photo ID and report 15 minutes before the scheduled appointment to Room 226 at the Testing Center.
Scores for the tests will be reported in approximately 1-2 weeks after the test date. Scores for essay portions of tests will be mailed 7-9 weeks after the test date.
IMPORTANT: There is a 6 month waiting period before repeating a test.
