Taking a CLEP Test can shorten your path to a college degree by allowing you to take course credits on subjects you already know.
It can also assist you into taking advanced courses.

The day of the exam, you will be required to show two forms of ID and pay a $30 test center/registration fee to MSU Testing Services (cash/check only).


Please allow 2 hours to complete this exam.
