General Information: 

CLEP is a 90 minute computer-based exam.  On test day, a total of two hours will be required for the exam administration and registration process.  Each CLEP exam is $85 (new price July 1, 2017), payable via credit card at the time you register for your test on the CLEP website.  A $25 non-refundable registration fee must also be paid to the UTC Testing Center before taking any CLEP exam.
