CLEP Testing

In addition to the possibility of receiving college credit through ACT testing, students who have had sufficient experience, training or study in a subject area may apply to take College Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject exams produced by the College Entrance Examination Board in order to receive academic credit. CLEP exams are offered on an individual appointment basis with our testing office located in the Beam Library. You can schedule an appointment by calling our office at (405) 425-5312 or you may email us at clep@oc.edu.

The student may also take CLEP exams after the semester begins if the student meets the Credit by Examination Policies. See the listing at the end of the following guidelines for CLEP exams offered and courses for which credit may be obtained. Scores noted below are subject to change and are for undergraduate students only.

If your ACT score is 28 or higher on the English and/or Math portion, you automatically receive credit for a course(s). Please contact the Registrar’s Office at (405) 425-5200 before taking a CLEP test or for more information.

CLEP Guidelines and Policies:

1. Only students who are enrolled at Oklahoma Christian University or who have been accepted for admission by the university may receive credit by CLEP examination.

2. Students may not attempt credit by examination for courses which they have audited or in which they are, or have been, enrolled and in which they have attended classes past the first week at Oklahoma Christian or any other university.

3. Students may attempt to receive credit by CLEP examination only once for each course.

4. Except where specifically provided for by a program, credit by examination may not be given in a course sequentially lower in the department or a prerequisite to a course for which a student has received credit.
