Kean University grants credit to students who have successfully passed the Advanced Placement Examination of the College Entrance Examination Board with a grade of 3 or higher (with some exceptions that require a 4 or higher). Six semester hours of credit are granted for full year AP courses. Three semester hours of credit are granted for one semester AP courses.

Advanced Placement credit is recognized as fulfilling General Education requirements where applicable and is treated as ungraded, but successfully completed transfer credit.

Please refer to the Advanced Placement Equivalency chart for the Kean University course and credit equivalencies for each of the Advanced Placement courses.    

In order to be evaluated for Advanced Placement courses, students must submit an official score report from the College Board to Kean University’s Office of the Registrar. Unless this credit is awarded on another college transcript and transferred to Kean, official score reports are required from the College Board in order to award credit at Kean University.

Official Test scores may be submitted electronically to or a hard copy may be mailed or hand delivered to Kean University, the Office of the Registrar, Administration Building, First Floor, 1000 Morris Avenue, Union, NJ 07083.  For both the Advanced Placement and CLEP examinations, the college code for Kean University is 2517.
