Institutional Course Placement Testing

Accuplacer (CPTs)

New students referred to the Counseling Center for placement tests will be given the Accuplacer CPTs (computer placement tests). OPSU administers the reading, sentence skills, and elementary algebra tests for placement. Students must have a Testing Referral Form from the Office of Admissions specifying which test(s) are needed for placement. Students may test on a walk-in basis between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. If a student wants to retake a CPT in a specific area, there will be a $5 charge.

Extra-Institutional Learning Testing

College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Students may receive CLEP credit by passing selected Subject Examinations with the grade equivalent of "C". Credit will be placed on the student's transcript when twelve resident hours have been completed successfully. The number of hours allowed is dependent on the requirements of the department in which the student majors, the certification sought, and the residence requirements of the University. All extra-institutional credits reflect a grade of "P" and no record is kept of unsuccessful attempts. The tests are given by appointment. The current fee per CLEP test is $75 and checks should be made payable to CLEP. An additional $15 institutional fee is required at the time the appointment is made.
