CLEP EXAMINATIONS

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 www.CLEP.com.
