The College-Level Examination Program ® (CLEP) is a nationwide credit-by-examination program that offers students the opportunity to obtain recognition for college-level achievement through a program of exams in undergraduate college courses. For CLEP examinations, you must meet the minimum score to receive credit. OCC does not grant credit for World Language CLEP tests. If you are not attending Onondaga, check with your institution to receive guidance on which CLEP exam(s) to take.
All CLEP exams are computer-based and are offered at the Testing Services Office on OCC's main campus. CLEP is not available on Saturdays, at OCC Liverpool or at the Educational Opportunity Center. CLEP testing will not be available when the college campus is closed for holidays, snow days, or when the Testing Services Office is closed for maintenance. An appointment is necessary; see below for details.
CLEP tests are hard. You can purchase review materials directly from the college board or you can find review books at the Reserves desk at OCC's Coulter Library.
