2021 Exam Dates
Due to adherence to workplace safety standards of reopening Suffolk University during COVID-19, we unfortunately will not be offering CLEP exams at our testing center for the upcoming spring 2021 semester (months of January, February, March, April, and May). Plans for the summer term (months of June, July, and August) and our CLEP testing center will be determined at a later date. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please email the Division of Student Success if you have any questions.

***For Suffolk University students, the biology and chemistry CLEP exams each provide 6 credits - two semesters of a non-lab science. If you require a four-credit lab science, the remaining lab credits can be received by registering for and passing a semester of just the the lab course associated with the exam that you passed. Suffolk students who require a lab science and pass the biology or chemistry CLEP examination must speak with the biology or chemistry department prior to registering for the lab course. The registrar's office will not allow you to register for only the lab course without receiving special permission from the department first.
Note: Suffolk does not offer the College Composition Modular or any language CLEP exams.
