CLEP Testing

All CLEP tests must be scheduled through the Testing Center. Please contact us to arrange a testing time at 432-335-6620.

The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests allow students to acquire college credit for advanced knowledge in a wide variety of academic subjects. OC awards credit for specific courses, up to a limit of 30 semester hours. Most exams award three hours of credit for a passing score.

The Testing Center provides the CLEP exam in every subject offered by CLEP. Students seeking credit for classes at other institutions may take the CLEP at OC and specify where their scores should be sent.

Advanced Standing Exams

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 these 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. For more information, contact the appropriate Department Chair.
