Taking a CLEP Exam
Testing at SXU
SXU is an "open" CLEP testing center -- anyone can take an exam on the campus. The Office of Records and Advising administers CLEP exams each academic term.
Please follow these procedures for scheduling an exam:
- Go to the registration page
- When you arrive for the test, you will need to pay CLEP's $80.00 examination fee with a credit card only (Visa/MC/AmEx/Discover).
Note: The $25.00 registration fee is non-refundable.
On the day of your test please bring: a picture ID (license/state ID), pens/pencils (scratch paper provided). Please do not bring the following into the test center: calculator, study materials, notes, audible electronic devices or food/drinks. Cell phones must be turned off during testing. Calculators are built into designated exams when they are required.
Testing at Another Institution
The CLEP® Colleges booklet and CLEP's website list other open testing centers that administer CLEP exams. Saint Xavier students who wish to take an exam at another location must contact that institution to obtain information on dates, registration process, service fees, etc. If you take an exam at another school's test center, remember to choose Saint Xavier as your score recipient. The Office of Records and Advising will receive your official score report within two weeks of your testing date. Remember that if you are an SXU student, you are always subject to the University's CLEP policies, regardless of where you take the actual test.
