The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on any of the many examinations. Earn credit for knowledge you’ve acquired through independent study, prior course work, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships.
The University of Central Florida does not award credit for all of the CLEP exams that are provided by the University Testing Center. Test credit is applied according to the published policy at the time the credit is received and posted by the university. For updated information regarding course equivalencies and all other important CLEP policies, please visit the UCF Undergraduate Catalog section on Accelerated Educational Opportunities. Scroll down to the CLEP policies, located after AP and IB credit.
Please note: UTC does not offer the optional essay component for the CLEP College Composition Modular Exam. Only the multiple-choice section is administered for this particular subject at our test center.
Please visit the College Board Website for tips on preparing for the exam and various resources.
Test takers planning to complete the Calculus, Chemistry, College Algebra, College Mathematics, or Precalculus exam titles may familiarize themselves with the online calculators by navigating to the CollegeBoard practice site. Note: test takers are not allowed to bring and use their own calculator for the CLEP exam. If a calculator is needed it will be integrated into the exam software.
The office of Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works in collaboration with the University Testing Center (UTC) to ensure that reasonable accommodations are made for test takers with documented disabilities. Test takers with disabilities seeking alternative testing arrangements (e.g. extended time, etc.) must request approval from SAS (407-823-2371 or firstname.lastname@example.org). Note: test takers should allow at least two (2) weeks for SAS and UTC to process the accommodation requests once the formal request has been submitted to SAS.
Once UTC receives official notification from the SAS office of a test taker’s approved testing accommodations, a UTC staff member will notify the test taker via email.
Note: Test-takers seeking to test with accommodations must schedule their appointment time for Monday-Friday at 12:45 PM or earlier.
There are two separate registrations and payments required per test: * See Modern States program information above under “Preparation” to get information on qualifying to test for free.
Note- The exam fee of $90 paid to CollegeBoard will increase to $93 in July, 2023.

Review the University Testing Center’s policies prior to test day. Items such as outwear (hoodies, sweaters, jackets, pullovers, cardigans, any form of second layer clothing), watches, and electronic devices are not permitted into the test room. UTC does offer lockers at no additional cost.
All appointments must be booked a minimum of 24 hours prior to the desired date/time. To schedule an appointment, navigate to RegisterBlast.
After completing the registration process, check your email for the test registration confirmation. If you do not receive a confirmation email, you must contact UTC during normal business hours to check your appointment status.
Rescheduling an Appointment
Appointments may be rescheduled up to 72 hours prior to your scheduled date/time at no cost by following the instructions below. Missed appointments will require full repayment of the test cost; this includes if you cancel or arrive more than 15-minutes late.
How to Reschedule Your Exam
A CLEP may not be retaken within a 3-month period. This waiting period provides the test taker with an opportunity to spend additional time preparing for the exam or the option of taking a classroom course.
You will receive a copy of your exam score immediately upon completion of the exam unless you have taken an exam with an essay or written section. For these exams, you will receive a combined score after the essay has been scored, usually three to four weeks after your test date.
If you want to send your scores to a college, employer, or certifying agency, you can request that the scores be sent to a score recipient through the CollegeBoard My Account registration portal prior to exam day. This service is free of charge only if you select your score recipient through My Account prior to testing. A fee will be charged for each transcript ordered at a later date.
If you designate UCF as the recipient of your official CLEP transcript, it may take approximately 4-6 weeks from the date of request through College Board/CLEP for the UCF Registrar’s Office to receive and process your scores. Please contact the UCF Registrar’s Office directly at email@example.com or 407-823-3100 if you need to check on receipt of an official CLEP transcript.
More information about CLEP score reports is available from the CollegeBoard website.
