The Master's College

Test Preparation

All CLEP examinations are computer-based. Candidates may familiarize themselves with the computer process AND the questions for their particular tests at the CLEP website:

When you report for your test, you must bring:

  • Current, valid ID with name, photograph, and signature (drivers license, passport or college student ID).
  • Your Social Security Number.
  • Credit card, personal check or money order payable to CLEP. (No cash.)
  • Name of the college or organization to which you wish your CLEP score sent (and mailing address if the organization is not among the common list of colleges and universities).

You must NOT bring:

  • Any calculator (a calculator function is included in the software for tests that allow one)
  • Calculator watch
  • Alarm wristwatch
  • Dictionaries, books, pamphlets
  • Paper of any kind (special scratch paper will be provided to you)
  • Slide rules, protractor, compasses, rulers
  • Cellular phone, pager
  • Listening devices
  • Copying and photographic devices
  • Transmission or receiving devices
  • Non-medical electronic devices (laptop computers, digital assistants, etc.)
  • Hats
  • Your own keyboard

The Master's College will not be responsible for the safety of personal items left unattended during a test. Leave all prohibited items outside the test building.

A report will be filed with CLEP for anyone found using testing aids during the examination and that person may be excused from completing the examination. Tampering with the computer or using it for any other purpose than the CLEP test is also considered misconduct.

At the completion of your test, the system will give you an option to cancel or report your scores to the institution you have selected. If you agree to 'send,' ETS will forward your official score report to your designated college within one week. (Exception: The English Composition with Essay is graded twice a month.)
