College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

The College Level Exam Program (CLEP) allows candidates to earn college credit through testing. There are many CLEP exams available which cover the more traditional college subject areas. With the exception of College Composition, the tests are composed of multiple choice and fill-in questions. All CLEP exams are administered on computer (CLEP-CBT). Here is a complete list of CLEP exams.

90 – 120 minutes depending on the exam taken

Students are required to pay a $30 sitting fee to FSCJ and a testing fee to CollegeBoard. The $30 sitting fee will be paid day of testing. The CollegeBoard payment fee is subject to change.

CLEP exams are available to FSCJ students and community members, unless they have already taken the same CLEP exam within the past three months.

A current, valid government-issued photo ID.


CLEP exams may be repeated after a three-month waiting period.

When you complete the computer CLEP, you will receive an unofficial score (excluding College Composition). This is the only score report you will receive. An official score report is sent to the college or university of your choice once your payment has cleared and CLEP verifies that you have not tested within the last three months. If you have taken the CLEP and need your scores sent to Florida State College at Jacksonville, call CLEP at (800) 257-9558 or download a CLEP Transcript Request Form.

FSCJ will enter all passing exams on the official score report, unless the student submits in writing a request for specific exams to be awarded prior to receiving the score report.

None. FSCJ will provide all testing materials. A calculator is embedded into the test for any questions that permit a calculator.
