CLEP Testing Procedures
Due to maintenance issues in the Shepard Student Center, we will not be able to offer CLEP testing during Summer 2022. Testing will resume in the fall semester. We apologize for the inconvenience.
As an alternative, CLEP offers at-home testing using Proctortrack. Detailed information and requirements are available online.

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.
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.
*Note: CLEP Credit Policy documents apply only to SUNY Orange and do not reflect the credit-granting policies of other institutions.
