The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP) helps you receive college credit for what you already know, for a fraction of the cost of a college course. Developed by the College Board, CLEP is the most widely accepted credit-by-examination program, available at more than 2,900 colleges and universities. Pass any of the 33 CLEP exams and achieve your college and career goals.
Each college and university establishes the score necessary to earn CLEP credit at that specific institution. It is the student’s responsibility to check directly their institution's CLEP policy. Institutional policies vary and you may waste time and money if you fail to investigate. Letter grades are not assigned to CLEP results; CLEP credit does not affect GPA. FGCU will accept up to a maximum of 45 hours of CLEP credit towards a bachelor's degree.
You may visit the CLEP website at: www.collegeboard.com/clep where you may purchase and download individual CLEP study guides. Always check with your Academic Advisor to confirm that the CLEP credit you're seeking will satisfy the requirements of your program.
Please visit the FGCU online catalog to read the Credit-by-exam CLEP policy:http://www.fgcu.edu/Catalog/equivdetail.asp?FMID=Equivalency+Tables&page=2.
The FGCU Testing Center is an open test center for CLEP and we are happy to provide CLEP testing services to FGCU students, students from other schools as well as the general public.
Registration may be accomplished online, in person or by mail, and must be received in the Testing Office no later than 1 day in advance of the time you wish to test. NO ONE WILL BE ADMITTED TO THE TEST WITHOUT THE PRESENTATION OF TWO FORMS OF IDENTIFICATION. The primary ID must be a government issued ID with signature. This includes a current passport with name, photograph and signature, valid driver's license with name, photograph and signature, State or Province ID issued by the motor vehicle agency with name, photograph and signature, a tribal ID card, or a naturalization card or certificate of citizenship. The secondary ID must be a current student ID, a military ID, or an unused primary ID from the choices for primary ID. Two separate fees must be paid:
I. Payable to the FGCU Testing Center: $30.00 (per test, Non-Refundable)
*The administration fee must be paid at the time you register for the test. Each test requires a separate administration fee. This fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. If you need or want to reschedule your test date the fee must be repaid prior to rescheduling.
II. Payable to CLEP: $80.00 (per test)
*The test fee goes directly to the National CLEP office and may be paid for by check, credit/debit card, or money order on the day of the test. Pre-paid credit cards are not accepted by CLEP, even if the card has a Visa, MasterCard, or American Express logo. The preferred method of payment is credit card (American Express, Visa, or Master Card only). You will need to tell the Testing Center when you register how you will be paying for your test on your test date. If you will be paying by credit card on the day of your test, you will personally enter your credit card number and expiration date into the computer. If you will be paying by check, your check needs to be made payable to CLEP and must be a separate payment from the administration fee paid to the Testing Center.
