CLEP registration is a two-part process:

  1. Create an account
  2. Register for an exam, and receive a voucher registration ticket with CLEP College Board. Candidates must bring the corresponding CLEP registration ticket on the day of testing.

Note: Active duty/reserve military members only will check a box that states they are eligible for DANTES-funded exams during the registration process. By selecting this and providing the necessary information, the exam total will be $0.00 when you confirm the order at the end of the registration process. If eligible DANTES-funded exam candidates do not select this box during the registration process, it will associate a fee with the exam.

Please visit your location webpage to schedule a CLEP Exam through MS Bookings.


Please visit your location webpage to schedule a DSST Exam through Bookings. No pre-registration with DSST is required; an account can be created on the day of testing.
