University College-Newark accepts up to 45 credits for prior learning. To earn such credit, a student must demonstrate college-level knowledge comparable to that required in a Rutgers University–Newark course.
There are three methods whereby the student may obtain credit for prior learning.
1. College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
2. Thomas Edison State College Examination Program (TECEP) standardized tests
3. Portfolio assessment, which is administered through Thomas Edison State College
