Exam Programs

Students at Thomas Edison State University can earn credit through hundreds of examinations that evaluate prior college-level knowledge.

All of the examinations reflect content areas that are commonly covered in courses that are taught in college classrooms. When students earn credit by demonstrating their college-level knowledge and skills by scoring at a satisfactory level on examinations, they are proving that they have knowledge and skills equivalent to that of students who learn the material in the college classroom.

The University's own credit-by-exam program is called TECEP®.

The University also accepts credit from other credit-by-exam programs. Check the links below to learn more information.

In addition, the University serves as a test center for the University-Level Examination Program (CLEP), the Ohio University Examination Program and the New York University Proficiency Testing in Foreign Languages Program.

Under appropriate circumstances, credit will be recognized for examinations in programs no longer offered, such as the United States Armed Forces Institute (USAFI). In addition, the University serves as a testing center for students who are enrolled in independent study courses from other institutions.
