Obtaining CLEP transcripts

If you did not indicate a score recipient institution at the time of your exam, and you want to request your CLEP scores, you can do so by ordering a CLEP transcript.

This transcript is a cumulative score report of all the CLEP exams you’ve taken, and the scores you earned in the last 20 years.

The institutional transcripts must be official transcripts in a sealed envelope, and show credit was received for the CLEP exam(s).
