You may not receive additional credit from exams if the credit has already been received through coursework. If you have any concerns about how the credits earned from the CLEP will impact your degree at Westminster, you should meet with your faculty advisor or the graduation coordinator in the Registrar’s Office before registering for any exams.

    • Request Westminster College as your testing site.
    • Pay the $87 portion of the full test fee.
  3. While registering, you'll have the option to purchase study materials. Alternatively, you can obtain free CLEP study materials from the Testing Center.
  4. Upon registering, you will receive an exam registration ticket. Save the exam ticket—you must bring it to your testing appointment.
  5. Pay $25 of the test fee at the Cashier’s Window in Bamberger Hall.
