What is CLEP?
CLEP is the College Level Examination Program that offers students a way of receiving college credit by demonstrating their knowledge in a wide range of subjects. Take a CLEP exam to validate prior course work from an unaccredited institution, advanced high school or extension classes, prior job or work experience, self-study, etc.
What are the costs?
The cost for each CLEP is a registration fee of $20 made payable to Toccoa Falls College and $80 made payable to the College Level Examination Program. The registration fee can be made online by choosing Make Payment under Student Accounts. The $80 fee is due at the time of the test in the form of check or credit card (cash not accepted). You may make changes or cancellations in writing before the registration deadline for a test; however, the $20 registration fee for a CLEP test is not refundable and cannot be deferred to another test date after the registration deadline.
