CLEP Exams

Would you like to shorten the time it takes to get your college degree? You may be able to earn college credit for coursework you already know by taking a CLEP Exam.

You can receive credit by earning qualifying scores on any one or more of the 33 CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) examinations. You may then be able to skip some of the general introductory courses and move on to classes relevant to your major and prospective career – saving time and tuition costs. One passing grade can earn exemption credits for one or more college courses.

For more information on CLEP exams, call the Assessment Center at 678-226-6605, send us an email or visit us in Building 100, Room 528.

The Assessment Center offers other tests and exams to advance your college experience and your career.

To register for CLEP testing with the College Board, create and manage your personal account through the CLEP registration portal at https://clep.collegeboard.org/register. Select the test you want to take and complete the form. Your CLEP registration and fee payment of $80 to the College Board is good for 6 months. When registering for CLEP testing be sure that you register with the exact same name as is shown on the Government Issued ID that you will present at the testing center upon arrival for testing.
Once you register with the College Board, make sure to print your registration ticket to present to the Assessment Center on test day. After registering, call the Assessment Center (678-226-6605) to schedule your appointment.
Gwinnett Technical College’s Assessment Center is an open CLEP test center, testing students for any school. We offer CLEP testing all day on Wednesdays and on Friday mornings by appointment. There is an administration fee that is to be paid in the Assessment Center on the day of testing.
One current, valid, government-issued ID with the test-taker's full name in English language characters displaying both a photo and a signature is required for CLEP test admittance. School IDs are not government-issued IDs and cannot be used for test admittance. 
Be certain to talk with your registrar (if from another school) or advisor (if from Gwinnett Tech) prior to CLEP registration so that you make sure you sign up for appropriate tests
If you plan to take the College Composition exam, please be aware that two college English professors from a nationwide pool are selected by CLEP to evaluate the essay portion of the College Composition exam. This evaluation period may take from two to five weeks before results are received.  Please make certain to factor in this additional required time when scheduling the College Composition exam around course registration periods.

CLEP tests may be repeated three months from the original test date.
