So you want to know how long it takes before your credit card is charged?
When you take a CLEP test online, it is charged (authorized) immediately. That means that the funds are taken from your account after you enter your credit card information and press submit at the beginning of the test. And yes, you HAVE to use a credit or debit card to pay for the test.
You'll also need to pay the CLEP testing center separately if they have a fee - and most do.
You can make sure you are totally prepared for your test by studying with the best CLEP resource possible - our CLEP test study guides. We offer a specific guide for every test so you only take time studying what you NEED to know to pass your CLEP test.
