Post Your Policy to the CLEP Website

Tens of thousands of students visit the CLEP website each month to see which colleges and universities grant CLEP credit. To ensure students have the most accurate information for your institution, help us keep your policy up to date.

To share your CLEP credit policy with students, follow the steps below.


  1. Assign a staff member to oversee your CLEP credit policy.

    Each institution must have a point of contact who is responsible for keeping your policy current.

  2. Get a CLEP institution code.

    A CLEP code allows colleges, universities, and other organizations to receive official CLEP scores. When students register for a CLEP exam, they can designate your institution to receive their scores. If your institution already administers CLEP exams, your CLEP test center code is the same code used for receiving scores.

    To request a code, email [email protected] with "CLEP Code Request" in the subject line and include the following:

    • Contact name
    • Title
    • Email address
    • Phone number (with extension)
    • Full institution address (where scores need to be sent)
    • Type of institution (college/university, high school, military, government agency, prison/hospital, business, foundation, other)
    • If a college or university, also specify public or private
  3. Get access to the CLEP Resource Center.

    The CLEP Resource Center is a password-protected website with resources for professionals interested in administering CLEP and/or developing a CLEP credit policy. If you don't have access, you can request a username and password by completing the CLEP Resource Center Account Request Form.

  4. Submit a CLEP College Credit Policy Form.

    Once logged into the Resource Center, click on Forms and then College Credit Policy Form. Enter all required information, including your CLEP institution code. Enter the required score and number of credits awarded for each subject. If you don't award credit for an exam, type "0" in the Minimum Required Score and Credit Hours Granted fields. Please allow two weeks for your policy to be posted on the CLEP website.

  5. To update your CLEP policy after it has been published, use the College Credit Policy Form again.

    To update your institution's CLEP credit policy, log in to the CLEP Resource Center and go to the College Credit Policy Form.

    Note: To update your policy, only enter the information that has changed.

    For example, if your institution has changed the number of credits awarded for the American Literature exam from 3 to 6, simply go to the American Literature exam row and enter "6" in the Credit Hours Awarded column.

    If you have discontinued granting credit for an exam, please enter "0" in the Credit Hours Granted column for that exam.
