The La Sierra University Testing Center offers a wide variety of CLEP exams to both La Sierra University students as well as students attending other colleges. It is strongly advised that you check with your school to ensure that you will receive the appropriate credit for the CLEP exams you wish to take. The La Sierra University Testing Center is not responsible for testers selecting unnecessary exams.

General Information

Please Note: Registration for CLEP exams is on-line only. Please click here to register for your exam.

La Sierra University is an open testing site, which means that we will test our own students as well as those from other colleges and universities. Students do not have to be currently enrolled as a student anywhere to take the exam.  Test takers will get their "unofficial" score reports within minutes of finishing the exam. Official CLEP scores will be sent to the college or university of your choice in approximately 3 weeks. To schedule an appointment, please click here

To secure a testing appointment, test takers must pay a non-refundable scheduling and proctoring fee of $50 during registration. Test takers will also pay $80 by credit card to Collegeboard CLEP as they begin their test on the computer. However, test takers with an appropriate military ID will have the $80 fee waived.

Testers requesting accommodations must speak with Ms. Lowry, Assistant Director for Testing.

La Sierra University makes no guarantee of the effectiveness of purchasing such material, and it is entirely up you as to whether you feel this material will be beneficial to your needs.)

  2. Your Exam Registration Ticket printout. (Pulling up information on a mobile device will be unacceptable. You must have the printout.)

Things to bear in mind for your testing appointment:

  • Any personal belongings (books, bags, watches, cell phones, etc.) will be stored in a secure on-site location until your testing has concluded.
  • No food or drink will be allowed in the Testing Center.
  • You may be asked to remove any jewelry based upon the discretion of the Testing Center staff.
  • No friends or family members are allowed to accompany you inside the testing room, and no non-testers under 18 years of age are permitted to wait unsupervised in our lobby area or adjoining study rooms.
  • If you do elect to bring a guest along with you on your test date, they must adhere to our rules and policies.  
  • Any flagrant disregard for our policies may have adverse results to your testing experience.

Please arrive for your test at least 15 minutes before your scheduled exam. There is a check-in process that you must undergo, and due to the potentially-high volume of testers at any given time, being early can help ensure that our staff will get you started as swiftly as possible.
