La Sierra Testing Center

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.

In order to take a CLEP exam in our Testing Center, there are several important steps you must take. 

STEP 1:  Purchase your desired CLEP exam from the official CLEP website:  clep.collegeboard.org

Upon purchasing your CLEP exam, you will be given an Exam Registration Number. You will need to use this number when you register with us for a test appointment date.

Once you have purchased your exam, it is very important  that you print out your Exam Registration Ticket. You must bring that printout with you to the Testing Center on your test date.

*(While visiting the website above, you will have an opportunity to purchase subject-specific study guides and handbooks from CLEP. 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.)

STEP 2:  Register here on our website to choose your specific CLEP exam. After choosing your exam, you will be given the opportunity to peruse any available test dates and times. During this registration, you will be asked for the Exam Registration Number mentioned above, and you will be requested to make an online proctor-fee payment of $50.

What to bring with you on your test date:

1. One current valid government-issued photo I.D. (ex. drivers license, state ID, passport, military I.D.)

2. Your Exam Registration Ticket 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.

-When you arrive to our campus, the ideal place for you to park your vehicle is in Parking Lot C. Parking in any other location could result in a parking ticket from the university's Security Dept.
