The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a series of examinations, which allow students to show their knowledge in a wide range of subjects. The purpose of CLEP is to provide a means for students to receive college credit for learning acquired outside the traditional college classroom.
All CLEP tests are offered by appointment. The student pays the $87.00 testing fee directly to CLEP. In addition, the student will pay a non-refundable administration fee of $30.00 to Blue Ridge CTC. If you have any questions regarding CLEP tests, please contact the Testing Center at 304-260-4380. You can also e-mail CLEP email@example.com or go to www.collegeboard.org/clep.
Blue Ridge CTC proctors all CLEP Exams listed in the CLEP Brochure. CLEP exams are computer-based and each is 90 minutes long, with the exception of College Composition (120 min) and College Composition Modular (160 min) with essay. It is strongly recommended students study from a textbook used in a college level course related to the subject matter. Also, the CLEP study guide is helpful for taking practice tests. Blue Ridge CTC accepts ONLY the CLEP tests listed on the Blue Ridge CTC requirement sheet.
The CLEP program has a policy that states that exams may not be retaken within a three-month period. If the candidate retakes the exam during this period, the administration is considered invalid, the score is canceled, and exam fees are forfeited.
CLEP may waive this policy for exams retaken after a three-month period upon special written request from an institution.
