CLEP Test Scheduling Request Form

The College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) helps you receive college credit for course content you already know if you earn a qualifying score on a subject area examination. CLEP exams are 90-minute, multiple choice exams offered online in the Montreat College Testing Center. Exams cost approximately $89. To receive test credit at Montreat College, you must pass each exam with the ACE recommended score or higher. An official score report must be sent to Montreat College (CLEP code 5423).
