Credit for Prior Learning

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
