CLEP Testing

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

By appointment only. Contact EAC Testing Office at (928) 428-8491 or jerri.lukens@eac.edu

 

What is CLEP?

The CLEP is a nationally recognized and widely accepted "credit-by-exam" program that offers 33 subjects corresponding to specific college courses. CLEP is designed to test students' knowledge on a variety of college-level subjects, regardless of where they learned the material. The exams are developed by college faculty committees who design questions based on what is typically covered in freshman- and sophomore-level coursework.

The CLEP program allows individuals to earn college credit and also demonstrate their academic proficiency. To receive credit, students must achieve the minimum scaled score recommended by the American Council of Education (ACE).

 

How Do I Prepare For The CLEP?

Just like any other exam, research what type of information is needed as well as the format of the exam.  There is a "CLEP Official Study Guide" available for review in the Eastern Arizona College Alumni Library. The College Board also has Exam Guides available for download for $10 each on their website. Look at the test descriptions and sample questions, discuss the CLEP program with a counselor and review the CLEP policy as it relates to the school of your choice.

Most colleges specify how CLEP credit is accepted and whether there is a credit limit for "prior knowledge". Determine if CLEP credit will be calculated into your GPA. This is very important when planning to transfer colleges.

 

How Do I Register To Take A CLEP Exam?

You will register, choose a test and pay the CLEP fee at this site.

We are an open CLEP Testing Center. It is not a requirement that you enroll at Eastern Arizona College to register for a CLEP exam. Testing is held Monday through Friday by appointment.  Please allow 2 hours for the testing process. You can call our office at (928) 428-8491 to schedule an appointment.

 

CLEP Test Fees And Methods Of Payment

Each CLEP test costs $95.

There is a $80.00 CLEP fee paid at registration. This can be paid by check or by credit/debit card payment via the computer directly to CLEP.

There is also a $15.00 administrative fee payable to Eastern Arizona College on the day of the test. You will pay this at the Fiscal Control office before you take the test.  EAC accepts cash, check, money order, VISA and MasterCard.

 

Eastern Arizona College and the CLEP tests

Eastern Arizona College accepts most CLEP tests.  For a list of the tests accepted, refer to the EAC catalog.

At Eastern Arizona College, the preferred method of demonstrating language proficiency in Spanish, French and German is by enrolling in the College’s competency based (Open Entry/Open Exit) courses in one of those languages at the appropriate level, rather than attempting a CLEP or other exam. Once proficiency has been demonstrated, EAC will place the credits earned on your transcript making them fully transferable.

If a student is awarded EAC language credit through CLEP and wishes to transfer this credit as evidence of language proficiency, then he/she may also be required by the receiving institution to pass an oral examination.

 

Test Proctoring for Distance Learning Classes

What are proctored tests?

Proctored tests are taken by people who are taking a course at another college, university or testing entity and who need to take a test under the supervision of a college testing office. The other college/entity mails or emails the testing materials to Eastern Arizona College’s Testing Office, and the person takes the test at a mutually agreed upon time under the rules laid down by the originating facility. The EAC Testing Office then returns the completed test.

The Evaluation Center at Eastern Arizona College is a proud member of the CCTC.

We accommodate paper and pencil and Internet versions of exams. Exams are given in the Evaluation Center Lab (Student Services building, room 142) with other students testing at the same time. Individual testing rooms are not available.

 

General Information:

  • For a proctoring appointment, please call at least one to two weeks before test due-date.

  • A state issued photo ID must be presented at the time of testing.

  • There is a $25 fee to proctor each exam (fee waived for current and former EAC students).

  • Electronic devices such as cell phones, cameras, optical readers or other electronic devices that include the ability to photograph, photocopy or otherwise copy test materials are not permitted in the testing room.

  • Call (928) 428-8491 or email jerri.lukens@eac.edu for more information.
