CLEP exams are computer-based tests that cover intro-level college course material in 34 subjects. More than 2,900 U.S. colleges and universities grant credit to students with qualifying CLEP exam scores and allow them to skip the introductory courses in related subjects.

How Schools Participate in CLEP

Schools can cover the costs of CLEP exams for their students by ordering vouchers through the My CLEP Professional Portal starting September 28. To place an order:

Get Access

The person responsible for ordering your school's vouchers will need a College Board professional account and My CLEP access code to log in to the My CLEP Professional Portal. 

Set Up a Profile

To place orders in the My CLEP Professional Portal, you’ll first need to provide contact information for your organization by setting up an organization profile.

Order Vouchers

After completing all required steps for accessing the My CLEP Professional Portal, you can start placing orders for the current academic year by clicking Start an Order.

Download Voucher Codes

Voucher codes can be accessed through the My CLEP Professional Portal's Order History page within minutes of your order being received. Click on the Download Vouchers link under the Order Summary, and a csv file will be downloaded with your codes. 

Important Notes

Registering for Exams

All students in Michigan, West Virginia, and Ohio must register for exams online and use the voucher code in lieu of payment. Eligible students with financial need must use a voucher code when they register so that schools are invoiced for the correct number of exams eligible for fee reductions. Students will see the full exam fee during registration, and the reduced price will be applied to the school invoice.

We'll bill schools twice a year for tests taken with a voucher—once in January and once in July. Before invoices are generated, we'll send a survey requesting schools to confirm the number of CLEP exams taken by students with financial need.

Ordering Vouchers

We recommend ordering at least 20% more vouchers than you think you'll need. Schools pay only for the tests taken with a voucher, and there's no penalty for overordering.

Who Qualifies for Reduced-Fee Exams?

In general, any student who's eligible for free or reduced-price lunch through the National School Lunch Program is also eligible for a CLEP voucher fee reduction.

Offer CLEP Testing at Your School

Although students can test at any official CLEP test center, they may perform better if they test in a familiar setting. If your school would like to administer CLEP to your students, apply to become a CLEP test center.
