CLEP Results

Dear Lee,

If your child takes and does NOT pass a CLEP exam, does the College Board® report that to colleges that the child applies to?

Thanks,

Sue


Sue,

When your child takes the test, you can choose ahead of time to send the score or not send the score. If you send scores later, after you know they pass, it costs more money. Here’s my tips: be SURE they will pass first, by making sure they get a good score at home on a sample test. And if you feel insecure at all, don’t submit scores until you see them – it’s worth the extra money.

Our experience has been that we didn't have to choose whether to send the scores until AFTER the test anyway so it wasn't a problem. My student still has trouble taking tests and missed a passing score on a CLEP by one point. She passed it 6 months later, but only the passing score went to the college. By the way, we still come out WAY ahead on this because the textbook itself for the regular class was more than taking the test, so even taking the test twice costs a great deal less than the class!
