What Does it Cost to take a TECEP?

TECEPs are very reasonably priced, whether you are a Thomas Edison State University student or a student at another institution. (If you are enrolled elsewhere, before you sign up for a TECEP, please make sure that the credits you earn through a TECEP exam will transfer back to your institution.)

Here are the costs (current as of the 2017-2018 academic year):

TECEP® Examinations Per Credit Attempted
Matriculated $39
Non-Matriculated $53


Most TECEP exams carry three credits, so the cost for signing up to take a TECEP will be $117 or $159, depending on your enrollment status. To sign up, click on “Create an Account to Apply Today” to get started.
