  • Students can retake the English Examinations three months after the test date; other retakes require a six-month waiting period (no exceptions).
  • The individual academic departments may administer other examinations. Students interested in junior or senior level examinations should check with individual departments.

UTA Students, please note the Credit-by-Examination Policy.

"Credit by examination can be awarded only for courses in which the student has neither a passing nor a failing grade (including a Z in English) at UTA or transfer credit from another institution of higher education." Read the complete list of credit-by-exam policies for UTA.

Spanish Supplemental:

The Spanish Supplemental is a multiple-choice exam that covers the fourth level of Spanish grammar and spelling.  If you are registered to take a CLEP Spanish test at UTA you are automatically given the Supplemental Exam and should not register for it separately.

If you passed the CLEP Spanish test but did not pass the Supplemental, and would like to re-test then you can sign up for the ASE Spanish Supplemental after three (3) months.

If you took the CLEP Spanish test at another test site and did not claim the credit at another institution (it is not transferring to UTA), then contact CLEP to have your scores sent to UTA (CB code 6013) and sign up to take the ASE Spanish Supplemental.
