The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) gives you the opportunity to earn college credit. Take one or more of the 33 CLEP subject examinations and earn a qualifying score as determined by the American Council on Education (ACE) or by the institution receiving your score(s). For a full list of available exam titles, descriptions of test content, and links to sample questions and study guides, please visit the official CLEP website, "exams offered" page: http://clep.collegeboard.org/exams/offered.
Note: Prior to testing, you should investigate your own institution's acceptance policy and passing score requirements. CLEP exams are computer-based.
Important: If you are interested in taking a CLEP exam, we encourage you to register as early as possible and by the registration deadline listed to the right of each exam date below.
Exams are filled on a first come first served basis. Phone our office (518) 564-2080 if you would like to arrange a special date for your class or group (5 or more) to take the CLEP exam at the same time!

The SUNY Plattsburgh test center uses a unique registration form. Please download from the link above or contact the Academic Advising Office: (518) 564-2080.
There are 2 separate fees:
Phone (518) 564-2080 if you would like to arrange for CLEP testing as a college credit option for your students.
The $80 "CLEP Exam fee" may be paid by credit card on the day of your exam (VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, or AMEX). Corporate credit cards, check or money order (payable to "CLEP") should be mailed with the registration form and separate test administration fee. We're sorry, but CLEP and SUNY Plattsburgh do NOT accept cash.
You may not sit for a CLEP exam until all fees (nonrefundable test administration fee and CLEP test fee) have been paid.
Registered test takers may change a scheduled exam date only once. This change must take place at least 3 business days before the originally scheduled exam date. Candidates who change a scheduled exam date three or more days prior to the exam date must pay a $20 rescheduling fee (payable by money order only to "SUNY Plattsburgh"). Test candidates who change/cancel fewer than three business days (72 business hours) prior to the exam date, or who do not show for a registered exam, will not be refunded for the test administration fee. If this is your case, you are welcome to register for a CLEP Exam again at a future date, and will be required to pay the test administration fee again.
