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. Onondaga Community College is a CLEP National Open Test Center. The college grants CLEP credit when these examinations cover material comparable to that covered in courses offered by Onondaga Community College in areas that can be applied to an associate's degree. If credit has been granted through examination prior to a student's application to Onondaga, an official transcript must be sent to the Office of Registration and Records. For CLEP examinations, you must meet the minimum score to receive credit. OCC does not grant credit for modern language CLEP tests. If you are not attending Onondaga, check with the institution you will be attending to verify its current CLEP policy.
All CLEP exams are computer-based and are offered on the main campus throughout the year in the Testing Services Office. CLEP test administration is available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2pm-4pm. Test takers can schedule an appointment start time between those hours; an appointment is necessary. CLEP is not available on Saturdays, at OCC Liverpool or at the Educational Opportunity Center. CLEP will be unavailable in 2017 on the following dates: May 2nd-May 12th. 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. Check our Testing Schedule to see if there are days other than holidays when Testing Services will be closed.
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.
Please note: CLEP testing is not available on Saturdays or at the North Site or Educational Opportunity Center locations.
