How to Register for a CLEP Exam 

All steps must be completed for successful registration:

  1. Register for a CLEP exam on the College Board CLEP Website.
    • Visit to get started.
    • First, select the exam you want to register for. You will be prompted to create an online College Board account.
    • Checkout and pay. The CLEP fee is typically around $95 per exam.
    • Print a copy of your CLEP Exam Registration Ticket. You will need to bring this on the day of your exam.

  2. Submit the CLEP Registration Form.
    • Due to limited seating, we recommend you register early to ensure your preferred exam date.
    • You may only take one test per exam date.
    • A confirmation letter will be e-mailed to exam applicants prior to the exam date.

What To Bring To Your Exam:

Once you have completed the registration steps and your exam date has been confirmed, be sure to bring the following with you on the day of your exam:

  1. Money Order* in the amount of $44 made payable to Suffolk County Community College
  2. Your CLEP Exam Registration Ticket
  3. Your Government-issued ID (e.g. Driver license)

*IMPORTANT: Please remember to obtain a money order in the amount of $44 made payable to Suffolk County Community College. This is your proctor fee, and you will need to bring it with you on the day of your exam. You can obtain a money order at a variety of locations, including Banks or Credit Unions, Western Union or MoneyGram, US Postal Service, 7-Eleven or CVS Pharmacy.

You may send your registration documents via email, or by mail correspondence to the appropriate campus address.
