An Advanced Standing Examination is the OC departmental version of the CLEP test. College credit can be awarded to a student who has advanced skills or particular expertise in a subject area. OC will accept up to 30 semester hours of advanced standing, whether from Departmental Advanced Standing exams, the CLEP test or a combination of the two.
An Advanced Standing Examination is always arranged through the Chair of the Department in which a student is seeking credit, though the exam itself may be proctored in the Testing Center. For more information, contact the Testing Center at 335-6620, or the appropriate Department Chair.
If you feel that you would benefit from taking a Departmental Advanced Standing Exam please download the application and complete each step in the order they are listed.
