CLEP Test

Before you register for a CLEP exam, check with your academic advisor at your current institution to make sure the CLEP examination you wish to take is appropriate for your needs. All CLEP tests are administered on the Moore County Campus in the Testing Center located in the Crouch Building (Room 1043). Exam administration schedules, registration dates, and deadlines are set by the Moore County Testing Center.

Test credit is applied according to the published policy at the time the credit is received and posted by TBR or the college. For updated information regarding this and all other important CLEP policies, please visit the MSCC Handbook section on CLEP.
