College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
To limit the spread of the Coronavirus, the Kean University CLEP Testing Center is currently only open to Kean students. If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.
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 18 credits for examinations in five general areas of the liberal arts - please refer to Section B under Examination Policy.
Kean students must first consult with their faculty advisor, carefully read the Examination Policy, and review Kean University's CLEP Course Equivalencies before registering to take any CLEP exam. Non-Kean students are advised to consult an advisor at their institution.
