CLEP Testing Procedures

In-person CLEP testing is available to incoming or current SUNY Orange students.  We are not able to offer CLEP testing to students from other institutions or former SUNY Orange students. 

As an alternative, CLEP offers at-home testing using Proctortrack. Detailed information and requirements are available online

Scheduling a CLEP Test *SUNY Orange students only*

  • Students must be fully vaccinated or have received a medical or religious exemption. Upload your vaccination card no later than 48 business hours before your test date. Or to request an application for medical or religious exemptions, please email: vpss@sunyorange.eduStudents that are not fully vaccinated or exempt will not be permitted to test on campus.
  • Register and pay the $90 CLEP fee directly on the CLEP website. Test takers must print the CLEP Registration Ticket and bring it to the Testing Center on the day of the exam.
  • Schedule a test date.  

Students with testing accommodations who would like to use their accommodations to take a CLEP test must speak with the Office of Accessibility Services prior to scheduling a test date.

ON TEST DAY:  Please go to the Testing Center/Office of Accessibility Services (Shepard Student Center, Room 227) with:

  • Face mask/covering
  • Valid, government-issued photo identification (such as a driver’s license, passport, or military ID)
  • CLEP Registration Ticket

*Test takers will not be admitted to the Testing Center without all of these items. SUNY Orange is not able to access CLEP Registration tickets, so test takers must bring these to the exam.

Save Money on Tuition and Graduate Sooner!

Earn college credit by passing a CLEP test. CLEP is a nationally recognized series of examinations which allow the student to demonstrate knowledge acquired in a non-college setting. Credit is awarded based on the score earned for each examination.

Optional Essays

Several exams (American Literature, Analyzing and Interpreting Literature, College Composition Modular, and English Literature) have optional essays that accompany the multiple choice exam. The essays are required for SUNY Orange students.

The College Composition Modular test is 70 minutes and the other three tests are 90 minutes long.
