CLEP Testing

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. For a list of CLEP exams offered please go to

There is a fee for each CLEP exam that will be paid upon registration through CLEP and the Testing Center charges a $15.00 proctoring fee BEFORE you can schedule your exam. To pay the Testing Center proctor fee of $15.00 please visit our Marketplace. After you have paid, a Testing Center representative will contact you to schedule the exam time and date. Students should be prepared with a photo ID and know your social security number on the schedule exam day.

Please be advised, if you make an appointment to test and do not show up for your scheduled appointment time, or fail to call at least 2 hours prior to your appointment time to reschedule your exam, you will forfeit your $15.00 proctor fee. A seperate proctor fee of $15.00 will be required before your exam will be rescheduled.
