CLEP® Testing

The College-Level Examination Program® (CLEP®) is a credit-by-examination program, sponsored by the College Board, which gives students the opportunity to earn college credit by earning qualifying scores on exams. CLEP exams are computer-based and administered on computer at Dyersburg State Community College’s Distance Education Testing Center.  DSCC charges a $25.00 administration fee for administering the test.  This is due the day of the test prior to taking the test.  To test, you must visit the CLEP website and register for a test.  Once you’ve registered and have the exam ticket, you can then Schedule your CLEP Examination at DSCC.

On your testing day, report to the front desk of the Learning Resource Center, Dyersburg Campus, 1510 Lake Road, Dyersburg, TN 38024.
