Who can take CLEP at Shepherd University?

Shepherd University is an open test center and anyone interested in obtaining CLEP credits may test through our center. Students enrolled at other institutions should check with the institution receiving their CLEP scores about that institution’s credit-granting policy. Students who have taken CLEP examinations prior to enrollment at Shepherd University must submit an official CLEP transcript to the Registrar’s Office. A CLEP test should not be taken for a subject in which you have previously enrolled and from which you have withdrawn. A CLEP exam cannot be used to change a grade of D or F received for course work at Shepherd University or another institution.

How do I register to take an exam?

  • Complete the registration form (available online or in the Advising Assistance Center)
  • Submit a $20.00 non-refundable registration fee to the Cashier's Office (2nd Floor, Ikenberry Hall)
  • Return the registration form along with the receipt of the registration fee to the Advising Assistance Center.
  • Create an account with CLEP at
  • Select and pay for your desired exam. Be sure to indicate that appropriate institution to receive your scores (Shepherd University, if you are a Shepherd student).
  • Print the Registration Ticket after payment and provide that to the testing center on your testing day.

What are the exams like?

  • CLEP exams require college-level knowledge and critical thinking ability; sufficient preparation is required to do well.
  • All CLEP exams are administered on computer.
  • The exams are timed. Most are 90 minutes long.

How will I know if I passed?

All examinations except College Composition with Essay will receive their unofficial score immediately upon completing the test. A copy of the official score report will be sent to the student and the Registrars Office.

How is credit awarded?

Answers are uploaded to CLEP in New Jersey. CLEP scores the exam and sends the official results to you and the Registrar's Office in approximately three weeks. The College Composition with Essay exam may take up to six weeks to receive scores. Examinees earning the minimum score or higher will receive credit on their transcript. The transcript will note credit received through CLEP, and examinees will not receive a letter grade. Therefore, CLEP credit will have no effect on an individual's GPA. The Registrar's Office will notify examinees whether or not they will accept the scores for credit.

What is the cost?:

There is a $20.00 non-refundable registration fee, per exam, paid when you register and $80.00 per exam paid to CLEP (on-line) prior to the day you take the exam. Testing is offered year-round. See the Schedule for current test dates.


How can I prepare to take a CLEP exam?

  • Review the exam description on the College Board Web site, or in the CLEP Official Study Guide available in the Advising Assistance Center. Review the outline of "Knowledge and Skills Required" for the exam.
  • Outlines for all exams are provided in the Official Study Guide. Review textbooks and other resource materials used in comparable college courses. Answer the sample questions in the Official Study Guide and use the "Answer Key" to determine the number of correct responses and readiness to take the exam.
  • Become familiar with the computer-based format of CLEP exams. The CLEP Sampler included in the Official Study Guide and on the CLEP Web site can help.
  • Study Resources: The Official CLEP Study Guide is available in the Advising Assistance Center. Included in the study guide are recommendations for preparation, a description of each exam, sample tests and information on additional resources.


Veterans and military personnel may be eligible for reimbursement of CLEP exam and administration fees from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
