Click here to see a list of CLEP and DSST exams accepted by UCO. Though UCO accepts only a limited number of DSST exams, many exams are offered, and are transferable to other institutions that accept them. DSST exams are administered at the Testing Center by appointment.
Extra-institutional examinations are only available for undergraduate credit. Credit earned by examination will not appear on the transcript until the student has successfully completed twelve or more semester credit hours of academic work at UCO.
Credit will be recorded with a neutral grade of P (pass) if the student earns a passing score. No grade is recorded if the student fails the exam. A failed test may be repeated after six months has elapsed.
A student may not test out of a course in which he or she is currently enrolled.
Foreign Language essays and College Composition Modular essays are UCO specific and will be graded by their respective UCO department. After taking the computer-based portion of the exam, a student may schedule an appointment to take the essay at UCO.
