  • A photo ID is required for all CLEP testing.  Your primary ID must be government-issued and include your name, signature, and a recognizable photograph.  The second ID may be any official ID containing your name and signature and/or photograph.  There are NO exceptions on the forms of ID that can be used.
  • A student does not have to be currently enrolled at Collin College to take a CLEP exam.
  • Exam scores may be sent to any institution that the student requests. Each institution determines its own policies regarding CLEP examinations, required scores, and credit given. The student is responsible for contacting the receiving institution to determine what exams are accepted.  We highly recommend you do this prior to signing up for a CLEP exam.  The CLEP voucher fee is non-refundable.
  • An unofficial score report will be available upon the completion of most CLEP exams.  Official scores will be sent to the test-taker and the school of choice in approximately 2 (two) weeks.
  • A waiting period of 3 months is required to retake any CLEP exam.
  • Please see the list of CLEP Subject Examinations accepted by Collin College toward the bottom of this page.

Note: Collin College will not replace an existing grade with CLEP credit, including a grade of 'W' (Withdraw).  A course must be dropped before the census date to avoid a grade of 'W'.
