Students who wish to have their score reports sent to Thomas Edison State University should provide the official college code, 2748, at the time of testing.

Note: The five general examinations test what is usually taught in the first year of college and sometimes duplicate other credit students have earned. Refer to the academic policy on duplication of credit for additional explanation. CLEP results are posted to TESU transcripts on a credit/no credit basis.
