College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

These national exams determine your knowledge in a particular area and grant you college credit for it. Each exam is multiple choice and 90 minutes in length. The CLEP exams are given between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the Student Service Testing Center, Room 262. The registration deadline is two days before the test date. The fee for each CLEP exam is $55.00 to CLEP and $15.00 to WSU.

  • If you've laready taken courses which satisfy general education requirements, you will only be eligible for partial credit through CLEP.
  • If you've already registered and completed a concurrent enrollment or university course or received AP credit, you cannot receive CLEP credit for the same material.
