Register for a CLEP Exam (IRSC Students or Students from Other Schools)

Each college sets its own policy regarding which CLEP exams it will grant credit for and how many credits it will award. Contact your academic adviser to learn more about the CLEP policy at your institution.

Step 2: Log In to the My Account Registration Portal.
You can create and manage your personal account through the CLEP registration portal at http://clep.collegeboard.org/register/exam.

DISTANCE LEARNING

Distance Learning Exams for Other Schools and Organizations

The IRSC Assessment Services Department is glad to proctor exams from other schools or organizations. Indian River State College offers proctoring services for both online and paper/pencil examinations. We receive exams from other institutions by mail, email or fax.

Indian River State College charges $40.00 per exam for our proctoring services and this fee must be paid to the IRSC Cashier prior to testing. The cashier’s office closes sharply at 6:30 PM, so please plan accordingly. They will accept your payment in cash, check or credit card. To take your exam, you will need to bring your receipt and photo ID to the Assessment Center. A valid photo ID is required for all exams taken at Indian River State College. Acceptable forms of identification include a valid driver’s license, a state or government issued photo ID, a college photo ID, or a passport. If an ID has an expiration date, it is no longer valid after that date. Also, once an ID is broken into more than one piece or has been cut, it is no longer valid. No electronic devices are permitted in the testing room. It is strongly recommended that you do not bring your cell phone to the testing room.

Our regular hours of operation during the fall and spring semesters for all of our Assessment Centers are Monday through Thursday 8:00 AM to 8:30 PM and Friday 8:00 AM to 2:30 PM. During the summer semesters we are closed on Friday. All exams must be completed by closing time and no appointments are required. However, you should call at least two business days in advance of your testing date to confirm that we have received your exam and the proctoring directions.

Listed below is the contact information of our Assessment Centers at each of our branch campuses. Students must have their exam sent directly to the campus where they want to test. We will not send exams from campus to campus. Please coordinate with your school to ensure that the exams are sent to the appropriate IRSC campus.

GET OFF TO A GREAT START WITH THE CLASSES BEST FOR YOU COLLEGE PLACEMENT TESTING

Be prepared for success! IRSC encourages you to take advantage of college placement testing to enroll in classes most appropriate for your skill levels.

According to Florida Statutes, some degree-seeking students are required to take a College Placement Test, while others are exempt. In any case, taking the college placement test is a good idea!

Who is exempt?

  • Students who entered 9th grade in a Florida public school in the 2003-2004 school year or after and earned a Florida standard high school diploma, or students serving as an active duty member of any branch of the United States Armed Services are exempt. Students must provide official high school transcripts or documentation of military status to be exempt. However, all students are strongly encouraged to complete College Placement Testing.

Who is required to complete College Placement Testing?

  • All other degree-seeking students are required to take acceptable placement tests such as the P.E.R.T (Postsecondary Education Readiness Test), SAT or ACT.

    Specific math, reading and English scores are used for placement purposes. See Placement Information for P.E.R.T., CPT, ACT and SAT.

IRSC provides you with a wide range of academic support services, such as free tutoring in Academic Support Centers at each campus, to help you succeed in college.
