If you're retaking an exam of the same title and have questions regarding the date of the initial administration, immediately notify the test administrator and contact CLEP Services.
Yes, for non-DANTES-funded test takers, a CLEP exam registration ticket expires six months from the date of purchase. The expiration date for your exam registration ticket can be found in My CLEP Account, as well as on the CLEP exam registration ticket. Be certain to schedule your appointment by contacting a CLEP test center or, if taking a CLEP Exam with Remote Proctoring, logging in to Proctortrack well in advance to ensure you meet the six-month deadline to test.
For DANTES-funded test takers, a CLEP exam registration ticket will be automatically canceled six months from the date of purchase to prevent DANTES-funded test takers from losing their funding. There is no penalty for canceling a registration ticket. However, if your ticket is canceled, you will need to reregister for your exam.
Consider taking your CLEP exam(s) upon arriving in the United States at the college or university where you'll begin your course work. Ask your admission officer or international student adviser about the college's CLEP policy.
