Schedule a CLEP Testing Appointment

Here is information you should know before you schedule an appointment to take a CLEP test at Ferris:

  1. CLEP tests are available Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Please note that reservations must be made at least 24 business hours in advance and will not be considered an appointment until a Testing Office representative contacts you. Those contacts will be made via phone within 24 hours (EXLUDING weekends and holidays as we are closed). For instance, if you make your appointment after 5 p.m. or weekends, you will not be able to sign up for tests the following day (or Monday) as that is not 24 hours in advance. Please note that NO testing is available during Final Exam Week.
  2. Ninety minutes of testing time is allowed for most CLEP tests; College Composition is two hours.
  3. The fee payment for each test is $105 (subject to change).
    1. If you are a Ferris student, the $80 (subject to change) CLEP fee must be paid at the time of registering for the CLEP test(s) on your My CLEP account through their website. CLEP accepts MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. Please contact the Testing Office before registering and paying for any exam to make sure you are eligible to take the test. The remaining portion ($25) will be billed to your Ferris student account unless you are graduating the semester in which you test. If you are graduating that semester, you must pay the $25 fee at the Student Services Center on the first floor before coming up to the third floor to test (make sure you request two receipts). Remember Ferris only accepts cash and checks/money orders.
    2. If you are not a Ferris student, the $80 (subject to change) CLEP fee must be paid at the time of registering for the CLEP test(s) on your My CLEP account through their website. CLEP accepts MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express. Twenty-five dollars ($25) is payable to Ferris State University; Ferris only accepts cash and checks/money orders. The $25 Ferris fee is paid on the first floor of the Timme Center to a Student Service Representative before you test. Please request two receipts (one for your records and one for ours).
  4. CLEP tests are administered in the Timme Center for Student Services, Room 313D. Bring your payment and two photo ID's (e.g., your driver’s license, passport, or your Ferris Bulldog card) with you when you report for testing.
  5. A scaled score of 50 or higher on each test is required to earn credit at Ferris State, and credit is awarded only to students currently enrolled. To print out a copy of Course Equivalents and Credits for CLEP Examinations in Adobe Acrobat format, click here.
  6. For most CLEP tests, you will receive your score report immediately upon completion of the test. If you are taking a test with an essay, please ask the test administrator when you can expect your results. The College Composition test can take anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks to receive your results.
