College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is offered at the Community College of Rhode Island. The CLEP is sponsored by the College Board and offers you the opportunity to obtain college credit by examination. Many American colleges encourage students to take CLEP tests for credit in subject areas they have mastered. People of all ages interested in pursuing a college education have reduced cost in time and money by completing CLEP tests.

CLEP TESTS ARE COMPUTER-BASED.   CLEP offers two types of 90-minute multiple choice tests. The General Examinations are designed to measure familiarity with material which would be covered in courses taken during the first two years of college to meet the general education or liberal arts requirements, and are offered in English Composition, Humanities, Mathematics, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences & History. Subject Examinations are designed to measure knowledge and achievement usually covered in specific college courses. The Subject Examinations, which are listed in the registration form, cover many different and specific areas.

To make an appointment students must send their completed registration form with the payment voucher and check/money order for the test center fee prior to the testing date. Each CLEP examination is $80.00 with a $30.00 Test Center Fee. Test fee payment must be made through CLEP directly. Please visit and go to My Account portal to make your online payment. 

You will need to bring two (2) forms of photo identification the day of the test. (i.e. valid drivers license, current passport, military ID, state ID, tribal ID card, college student ID card)

Testing is available at either 8:30 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. Please be advised that College Composition & College Composition Modular w/Essay is only available at 8:30 a.m.
