College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) offers students the opportunity to obtain college credit by examination. Each college or university is individual and independent in setting CLEP policy. The student should check with the college or university where he/she is enrolled to learn about its CLEP requirements. If the score on the examination is acceptable to the institution where the student is enrolled, the student may receive credit. No quality points are awarded, only credit hours.

  • CLEP Test Fee $89.00 – Payable at CLEP website
  • CLEP Administration Fee $50.00 – Payable by check to Mississippi College

The student must create a CLEP account and pay the fee $89.00 online for each CLEP test. Please bring the ticket and the $50.00 check payable to Mississippi College when you are taking the test.
