The College-Level Examination Program enables non-traditional and traditional students to earn college credit by examination. CLEP is administered by the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB), Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ. This College accepts CLEP credits as follows:
Subject Examinations: SUNY Oneonta will award credit and/or placement for those CLEP subject examinations that are equivalent to courses presently accepted for transfer to this College. In addition, SUNY Oneonta will award credit and placement for each acceptable subject examination in which an individual earns a score that is at or above the mean score achieved by students in the national norm sample.
The College strongly urges students to take the optional essays since these essays will help to provide departments with additional information about the individual’s knowledge of the subject matter.
General Examinations: SUNY Oneonta will award credit in each of the acceptable General Examinations in which an individual has scored at or above the 50th percentile. Credit will not be awarded to an individual for any score at or below the 49th percentile. The 6 s.h. will be accepted in the General Education area and applied to two different disciplines.
