The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) gives you the opportunity to receive college credit for what you already know by earning qualifying scores on any of the many examinations. Earn credit for knowledge you’ve acquired through independent study, prior course work, on-the-job training, professional development, cultural pursuits, or internships.
The University of Central Florida does not award credit for all of the CLEP exams that are provided by the University Testing Center. Test credit is applied according to the published policy at the time the credit is received and posted by the university. For updated information regarding this and all other important CLEP policies, please visit the UCF Undergraduate Catalog section on CLEP.
Please note: UTC does not offer the optional essay component for the CLEP College Composition Modular Exam. Only the multiple-choice section is administered for this particular subject at our test center.
Please visit the College Board Website for tips on preparing for the exam and various resources.
Test takers planning to complete the Calculus, Chemistry, College Algebra, College Mathematics, or Precalculus exam titles may familiarize themselves with the online calculators by navigating to the CollegeBoard practice site. Note: test takers are not allowed to bring and use their own calculator for the CLEP exam. If a calculator is needed it will be integrated into the exam software.
A CLEP may not be retaken within a 3-month period. This waiting period provides the test taker with an opportunity to spend additional time preparing for the exam or the option of taking a classroom course.
You will receive a copy of your exam score immediately upon completion of the exam unless you have taken College Composition. For this exam you will receive a combined score after the essay has been scored, usually three to four weeks after your test date.
If you want to send your scores to a college, employer, or certifying agency, you can request that the scores be sent to a score recipient through the College Board My Account registration portal prior to exam day. This service is free of charge only if you select your score recipient through My Account prior to testing. A $20 fee will be charged for each transcript ordered at a later date.
If you designate UCF as the recipient of your official CLEP transcript, it will take approximately 4-6 weeks from the date of request through College Board/CLEP for the UCF Registrar’s Office to receive and process your scores. Please contact the UCF Registrar’s Office directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 407-823-3100 if you need to check on receipt of an official CLEP transcript.
