How to Register for a CLEP Exam

The first step to take a CLEP exam* is to log onto and register via the My Account feature. Payment for the exam is $85.00 and is made at the time of registration through My Account.  You will be issued a registration ticket after paying for the exam.

To sign up for the test at NCC, contact Pat Klein, 603-578-6817 or email her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  You can also call the main phone number of the Academic Advising Center, 603-578-8906.  You will be asked for your ticket (voucher) number that is printed on your registration ticket. 

Bring the ticket with you the day of the exam along with identification that has your picture and signature.  This can be a driver’s license or a passport for example. NCC charges a $25.00 fee for administering the test which can be paid the day of the exam.

If you do not pass a CLEP test you must wait three months to take it again.

CLEP tests are taken on the computer and score reports, for most tests, are available immediately after the test.

The CLEP official study guides with sample questions for exams is available through the Collegeboard website.
