CLEP Price Increase to $80
The CLEP exam fee is now $80. We are sensitive to the current economic conditions and strive to keep our costs to a minimum. Our primary goal is to maintain and continue developing a valid and reliable testing program that helps students reach their educational goals.
In the past year, we have launched a number of new initiatives and tools, including:
- An interactive website where students and professionals can easily access resources on the CLEP program
- New guides, brochures and tools that highlight the value of the CLEP exam, including Academic Success in Higher Education
- A series of new online professional development workshops and regional mini-conferences around the nation
We encourage you to let your students know about the CLEP exam fee increase. Starting July 1, CLEP marketing materials will include the new exam fee. Materials can be ordered through our Free CLEP Materials portal.
