How to Qualify for Free CLEP Exams
DANTES will pay CLEP exam fees for active duty and reserve personnel in each branch of the armed forces. Civilian employees and spouses of service members in the Air Force Reserve, Coast Guard Reserve, Army Reserve, Army National Guard, and Coast Guard can also qualify for free tests.
CLEP exams are given at thousands of colleges and universities in the United States - some of which are base-sponsored testing centers - as well as on military bases across the globe. Individuals who test at an approved location can also have their administrative fees waived.
However, DANTES only pays testing and administrative fees for an individual's first attempt at a particular test title. To receive these benefits, test takers must denote their eligibility during the registration process and bring their military ID with them to the testing center on exam day.
