How It Works

The CLEP bulk purchase program allows schools, districts, employers, and other institutions to cover the costs of CLEP exams for large groups of test takers.

Institutions that participate in the bulk purchase program pay $85* per exam taken with a minimum purchase of 30 exams in a given academic year (July 1–June 30).

  • Purchasing institutions will receive a list of voucher codes that test takers can use to register for CLEP exams.
  • Test takers register through the standard online registration process, using a voucher code in lieu of payment. At the end of the checkout process, test takers receive a registration ticket that is valid for six months and can be used at any CLEP testing center.
  • Purchasing institutions are invoiced each month for exams taken during the previous month. High school and district purchasers will also receive a report of test taker scores each month.
  • To order voucher codes, complete all fields in the CLEP Bulk Purchase Order Form (.xlsx/50 KB) and return the form by one of the order deadlines (below) to [email protected]. Please indicate "CLEP Bulk Purchase: [Institution Name]" in the subject line.

Note: If you plan to submit your form by printing, signing, and scanning it, please also email us an unsigned Excel version of your completed form. We need the Excel version in order to input your information into our ordering system.

*Starting July 1, 2018, the CLEP exam fee will be $87.
