Developing a CLEP Test Center
CLEP exams are administered at over 1,900 college campuses in the United States and abroad. The exams are taken on computers located within test centers. CLEP test centers may be established with two computers or with 50 — as long as you have a designated room for testing and proctors and your computers meet the iBT (Internet-based testing) Test Delivery Requirements (.pdf/102KB).

- Save money
- Save time
- Graduate sooner
