College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)

General Examination and Subject Examination

CLEP exams enable you to earn college credit for knowledge you already have...knowledge that you may have acquired through independent study, prior course work, professional development, on-the-job training, cultural pursuits or in some other manner.

Produced by the College Board, CLEP exams are available in 33 subject areas. General Examinations may be used for elective credit. Subject Examinations are suitable for meeting some General Education requirements.

If you are a matriculated student at SUNY Oswego and intend to have the score sent to SUNY Oswego, you must file an Off-Campus Study Approval Form prior to taking the CLEP examination in order to ensure you will receive credit as expected. It is your responsibility to register for and to take the correct exam. For additional information, call the Division of Extended Learning at 315.312.2270.

CLEP exams are administered by the SUNY Oswego Division of Extended Learning at our Phoenix Center location.
