Please read the appropriate information about the Civic Literacy Undergraduate Degree Requirement at UCF before registering for any civic literacy test.
Consult with your academic advisor if you need additional guidance about the best option for you to satisfy the requirements.
Note* Students may choose to take the CLEP exam for American Government to satisfy both the course and exam requirements.
The FCLE is available to take in-person on the UCF main campus for UCF students, and appointments are required. At this time, students must schedule at least 7 days in advance.
The FCLE is computerized and consists of 80 multiple-choice questions. Test-takers will have approximately two (2) hours to complete the test.

Additional resources are available via the FLDOE Civic Literacy webpage.
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 email@example.com). 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.
Test takers must 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. The full list of UTC policies can be found here.
All appointments must be booked a minimum of 7 days prior to the desired date/time. To schedule an appointment, navigate to RegisterBlast.
After completing the registration process, the test registration confirmation will be emailed. If a confirmation email is not received, test-takers must contact UTC during normal business hours to check appointment status.
Rescheduling an Appointment
Test takers may reschedule their appointments at no cost up to 7 days prior to the scheduled test date/time by following the instructions below. To reschedule within 7 days, test-takers would need to email a cancellation notice to UTC and schedule a new appointment, including full repayment of the test cost. Missed appointments will require full repayment of the test cost, this includes cancelation or arrivals more than 15-minutes late.
How to Reschedule
The UCF retake policy for the FCLE is that test-takers can retake the exam after 30 days, with possible exceptions made on a case-by-case basis. There is currently no limit on the number of retakes a student may attempt.
A pass/fail status will be immediately available at the completion of the exam. Official scores may take a few weeks to appear on the degree audit.
