Testing Services CLEP Page

General Information

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests allow you to earn college credit by taking exams instead of taking classes. If your scores are high enough, you can complete your college degree in less time than the traditional college student. The CLEP tests offered in Testing Services are available only for students who are currently enrolled in classes at Jacksonville State University or who have been accepted for admission to the university. Any student, Jax State or otherwise, who wishes to take a CLEP test also has the option to take the exam online with remote proctoring. Visit https://clep.collegeboard.org/about-remote-proctoring for more information.

What are the steps required to attempt CLEP exams at JSU?

Step 1:  All JSU Students must complete the Registrar's Office CLEP Request Form before registering to ensure their desired CLEP attempt will count toward their requirements.

Step 2:  Candidates must register through College Board before scheduling an appointment with Testing Services. To register and pay the exam fee to CLEP,  go to: https://clep.collegeboard.org/register-for-an-exam . Please be sure to print a copy of the Registration form with your voucher ID. This will be required for in person exam administration in the Testing Center. Remote proctoring is an option for Jax State students as well visit https://clep.collegeboard.org/about-remote-proctoring for more information.

Step 3: Contact testingservices@jsu.edu to schedule an appointment once you have completed the CLEP request form and paid for the exam through College Board.
