Developed by the College Board, the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) consists of a group of standardized tests that assess college-level knowledge in several subject areas. Students who achieve a passing score on a CLEP examination may earn introductory-level college credit, allowing them to move on to more advanced, higher-level courses.
CLEP offers examinations in the areas of English composition (essay option only), Humanities, Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Social Sciences and History and other specific subject areas. Kean University awards up to 24 credits for examinations in five general areas of the liberal arts - please refer to Section A under Examination Policy.
Students interested in CLEP should first consult with their faculty advisor, review the Examination Policy, and Kean University's CLEP Course Equivalencies to ensure that possible CLEP credits can be applied toward their specific degree requirements. Non-Kean students are advised to consult an advisor at their institution.
Students requiring test accommodations based on individual needs, should contact the Placement Testing Office at (908) 737-0340 at least two weeks prior to the test. Documentation must be provided. Accommodations that can be arranged directly with Kean include:
