So many nurses, paramedics and physical therapists are using the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) to satisfy credits needed to graduate from Excelsior College. Passing these exams allows you to get college credit for what you already know, saving you time and money!
To get started, go to this CLEP College board site and click on the zip code button. Enter your zip code and then click “go.” Once you have chosen a site, you will need to contact the site directly to find out their registration process. With the CLEP exam available at over 1700 test centers, there’s sure to be one near you. Don’t forget to ask about service fees, transportation options and parking.
Request a registration form and the policies to go with it. Different testing sites have different procedures to follow. Test fees must be paid by credit card, money order or check, made payable to “College-Level Examination Program.”
CLEP exams are $80 (other fees may apply). Many colleges (test sites) charge a non-refundable administration fee that should be sent directly to the test center. Contact your test site to determine its fee and payment options.
There are 33 different CLEP exams to choose from. At Chancellor’s Learning Systems, we want to help you make the leap from LPN to RN as quickly as possible. As always,contact us with any questions on your road to achieving your goal!
