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. CLEP credits are treated as transfer credits and must be completed the semester prior to that in which a course is required. If credit has been granted through examination prior to a student's application to Onondaga, an official transcript must be sent to the Certification and Records office. As an incoming student transferring CLEP credit, you must successfully complete at least half the required academic credit hours at Onondaga Community College in order to fulfill requirements for the Associates degree from Onondaga. 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 that CLEP credits will be accepted.
All CLEP exams are computer-based and are offered on the main campus throughout the year by the Testing Services Office. CLEP test administration is available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2pm-4pm. Test takers can begin testing between those hours; an appointment is not necessary. CLEP is not available on Saturdays, at the North Site or at the Educational Opportunity Center. 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. See our calendar here to see if there are days other than holidays when Testing Services will be closed. CLEP testing will be unavailable during the following time periods: August 19th & 20th, September 2nd & 3rd, November 26th, December 16th & 17th.
Please note: CLEP testing is not available on Saturdays or at the North Site or Educational Opportunity Center locations.
