    Hi Can, I put some links in your other thread by mistake. I don't know about doing those online, but there may be a test center on your military base.

      I've never heard of being able to do this, but if you're going to use ProctorU anyways than why not Straighterline? While I have strong objections to ProctorU and far prefer CLEP exams, if you're willing to use ProctorU than taking an SL course shouldn't be a problem. They do offer a lot more courses now than before. Well, this is of course assuming that your school accepts credits from SL, that's something you'll have to verify first.

        I had just read a thread that said CLEP now requires proctoring of their tests.....And I'm in South Korea for the next 2 years.....So I was worried I wouldn't be able to CLEP....BUT I found out good news today...I can do the CLEP tests at another military base an hour away! I'm so relieved! They are charging 185.00 for CLEP and 80.00 for DSST. Is this the normal rates?

          I thought CLEP always required that you take the test at an approved testing center. So, no, you can't use ProctorU. $185 for the CLEP is expensive. The exam is only $80 and most testing centers only charge a $20 test fee at the most. Maybe it's because it's a military base.

            .

            $185 for a Clep is absolutely ridiculous. Are one of the Korean universities able to admin? Are you in the military?

            Don't waste time by trying to save time. The only sure way to complete your degree is to knock out credits quickly and efficiently.

            Don't let easiness bite you in the rear. Know your endgame (where you want to be) and plan backward from there. Your education is a means to an end.

            Be honest professionally, socially and academically. There are people (especially little ones) who look up to you and they're going by your example.

            Be proud. Whether you're an Engineer or Fast Food worker, there is honor and dignity in hard work.

            Picking on people weaker than you only proves that you are a weak person.

              I think you may have some bad info Can219. CLEP and DSST have always been proctored at test centers, and Proctor U doesn't work that way.

              The $185/$80 fees should only apply to civilians. Both the CLEP and DSST should be free for your first attempt if you are active duty. No idea where you
              are in Korea, but there is a test center listed for Camp Casey. Test Center Search | CLEP


              "DANTES funds CLEP exams (one attempt per title) for the following groups:

              Military personnel (active duty, reserve, National Guard): Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, U.S. Coast Guard, Army Reserve, Air Force Reserve, Marine Corps Reserve, Navy Reserve, Coast Guard Reserve, Army and Air National Guard
              Spouses and civilian employees of: Air Force Reserve, Air National Guard, Army National Guard, Army Reserve, Coast Guard (active and reserve)"
              CLEP for Military | CLEP

              You really need to talk to someone at the test center to make sure you aren't paying for nothing.

                If you are active duty in the military they should be free. If you're a veteran you have to pay for the exam and sitting fee, but the VA will reimburse you.

                  I'm sure Can219 will stop by and speak for herself, however in another thread she did say something like DH is an army contractor, so she is not active duty military.
