CLEP for Military Personnel and Veterans

CLEP® exams are funded by the U.S. government through the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) for the following:

Note: CLEP® exams for civil service employees, inactive guard or reserve personnel, and spouses and dependents not listed above are NOT funded through DANTES. In addition, the U.S. government will not fund CLEP® examinations that are repeated within a 180 day period.


Depending on their benefits election, some veterans can claim reimbursement for CLEP® exams and exam administration fees under provisions of the Veteran's Benefit Improvement Act of 2004 (Public Law 108-454), which enhances the education benefits of the Montgomery GI Bill®.
