What is CLEP?
College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) is an exam that gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on an exam.
Who is eligible to take the CLEP?
Anyone with acquired knowledge through independent study, prior course work, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships may take the CLEP.
How much does the exam cost?
The non-refundable CLEP fee is $85.00 per exam. This fee is paid when registering for CLEP online at clep.collegeboard.org/exam.
For non-ASU-Beebe students, a $25.00 non-refundable administration fee must be paid on the testing day before the exam will be administered:
- Beebe Campus: Cashier's Office, State Hall 1st Floor (bring paid receipt to Testing Center)

DANTES-funded military examinees may be eligible for free testing. Talk to the ASU-Beebe LRAFB staff to see if you qualify before registering for an exam.
