CLEP exams are nationally standardized credit by exam tests recognized by most institutions of higher education across the nation. The College-Level Examination Program gives students the opportunity to receive college credit for what they  know, by earning qualifying scores on the appropriate examinations.

Ramapo College offers CLEP testing services to both Ramapo College students as well as students  enrolled at other colleges and universities.  

Ramapo students must obtain an Off Campus Study Form from the Center for Student Success before registering to take a CLEP exam. Center for Student Success is located in the Academic Complex, Wing 4, Room D-207 (across from the Registrar’s Office).

Test-takers must have a valid, government-issued ID that has both a photo and a signature.  Please see the acceptable forms of ID provided below the registration instructions.   Students who arrive at the Testing Center without a copy of their CLEP Registration Ticket and the required valid, government-issued ID will not be allowed to test. 

***RCNJ Students Only- Please be sure to fill out an OFF CAMPUS STUDY REQUEST FORM prior to registering below. Bring it with you to your appointment.
