College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
What is CLEP?
CLEP is the College Level Examination Program that offers students a way of receiving college credit by demonstrating their knowledge in a wide range of subjects. Take a CLEP exam to validate prior course work from an unaccredited institution, advanced high school or extension classes, prior job or work experience, self-study, etc. Each CLEP test is worth 3 credit hours.
How Do I Register?
Students can register with TFC to take a CLEP online on the Academic tab on the TFC website. Then students must register with CLEP by going to www.collegeboard.org/clep. The registration deadline is one week before the test date. The College Board CLEP School code for TFC is 5799.
What Are the Costs?
The cost for each CLEP is $89 to be paid at the time of registering with The College Board and an administration fee of $20 to be paid to Toccoa Falls College at the time of the test.
When can I take CLEP tests?
CLEP testing is offered in the Center for Academic Success Monday through Fridays from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. No tests will be administered during final exam week.
All CLEP testing must be completed before a student reaches the end of the sophomore year (before reaching 60 hours). Most CLEP tests last for 90 minutes.
Students may attempt each CLEP only one time. Students may not take CLEP if they are currently taking the course or have attempted the course previously.
