CLEP Testing

You can receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on any one or more of the 33 CLEP examinations.

  About the CLEP Test

More than 2,900 colleges and universities in the United States will recognize this demonstration of your knowledge. Each college or university sets its own CLEP policy regarding how much credit will be granted and for which courses. A score of 50 is required to receive credit from Yavapai College. Exams are computer-based and 90 mins in length (College Composition 120 mins).

  You must register for CLEP

You must first register and pay the $80 CLEP exam fee through the CLEP My Account portal. Once you have been issued your Registration Ticket you may call the Yavapai College Testing Center, (928) 776-2200, to set up an appointment to take the test.

  CLEP Retest Policy

The CLEP retest policy has changed. All CLEP test-takers who tested after Oct. 17, 2014, only have to wait three months (not six months) to retake a CLEP exam.
