College Level Exam Program (CLEP)
Students can take an online test and receive college credit for various courses. This
allows the student to decrease the amount of time it might take to earn a
degree. For a complete list of courses for which credit is given, as well as which
ones are accepted at Coastal Carolina University, see the CLEP online brochure.
Students may take each test only once and pass to receive credit for courses. Tests are given by appointment during regular Center hours. A registration form must be filled out and submitted online (link below) with a $40 payment (non-refundable). Once the form is received, it will be submiitted to the Dean of the College of the student's major for signature (CCU students only). Once we have the Dean's approval, the candidate will be contacted and an appointment time set. Non-CCU students will be contacted upon receipt. The student will need to bring a valid ID and an $80 payment for CLEP, check or credit/debit card only, when they come to the Center to take their test.

Clep candidates are required to present two (2) forms of valid identification. The primary ID must be a government-issued photo ID with candidate's name, signature and recognizable photograph. The secondary ID must contain either a photo or a signature.
If you have questions about the ID requirements, please contact the Academic Testing Center before your scheduled appointment.
Acceptable primary IDs include:
Current passport, valid driver's license, state/providence ID issued by motor vehicle agency, national ID card, tribal ID card, naturalization card or certificate of citizenship, or if the student is a minor and unable to provide a primary government issued ID theyn the College Board ID Form may be used.
Acceptable secondary IDs include:
Current student ID, military ID, or any unused ID from the primary choices above.
NOTE: BEFORE SCHEDULING A TEST, BE SURE YOU ARE PREPARED TO TEST.
