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.

Registering and Scheduling a CLEP Test

  • First, register and pay the $89 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.

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.

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. You must check with your school to find out if the optional essay is required. 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.
