*Students who take the national CLEP subject examination in College Composition Modular must have the essay portion of the exam (as well as the score report for the objective section) sent to the University of Oklahoma (Office of Admissions). The English Department at OU will read and score the essay portion of the exam and determine a final score for the entire examination. Prospective students are advised that the numerical score on the national score report from CLEP does not reflect the final score for this examination and should not be used to determine whether credit will be awarded for this examination.
