MVCC now offers CLEP testing of prior knowledge for college credit


Mohawk Valley Community College is now offering College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) testing at its Utica Campus, providing individuals the opportunity to earn college credit by demonstrating prior knowledge of introductory-level college course content.

Prior learning can occur through advanced high school courses, online courses or textbooks, non-credit courses, or on-the-job training. There are 34 different CLEP exams covering college course material.

CLEP exams are offered year-round at all official testing sites, including MVCC’s Testing Center, located in the Student Service Center in Payne Hall at the College’s Utica Campus, 1101 Sherman Drive.
