How to Register for CLEP

CLEP examinations are administered in the University Testing Center, located on the second floor of Nichols Library. Examinees must submit their registration forms at least one week prior to the exam date. Registrations will be accepted in the order they are received and, depending on space limitations, examinees may be required to reschedule for a later time or date. For this reason, registration forms, along with the proper fees, should be submitted as soon as possible. Registration forms may be submitted by mail or delivered in person to Angie Moore at Nichols Library.


There are two separate fees associated with CLEP exams: a $20.00 registration fee and an $80.00 examination fee. The $20.00 registration fee can be paid by cash, check, or money order made payable to Faulkner University and must accompany the registration form.

The $80.00 exam fee for the CLEP test must be paid to CLEP via the My Account self-serve registration system at https://clepportal.collegeboard.org/myaccount before the day of the exam. Contact CLEP Services at (800) 257-9558 or clep@info.collegeboard.org with any questions regarding My Account or the CLEP exam registration ticket.
