UPDATE: Free TECEP ended

Thomas Edison State University’s free TECEP program ended this week. I’ll leave the post up, because you can still learn about TECEP and use them for college credit- but they now are back to their regular price.

TECEP® Scholarship

For the September 2023 Term, through a grant from the NJ Office of the Secretary of Higher Education, we are pleased to offer scholarships for up to 5 TECEP exams per student, for all TESU students.

TECEP exams are now back to regular price:

TECEP® ExaminationsPer Credit Attempted
Lower Level TECEP Exams (100-200)$52
Upper Level TECEP Exams (300-400)$77

You can register for a TECEP® exam whether or not you are enrolled at Thomas Edison State University. After you register, we will send you a confirmation email with detailed information so you can make your testing arrangements. You can test anytime during the 12-week term you select once your testing arrangements have been confirmed by the Office of Test Administration. TECEP® policies and contact information

TECEP exams are offered in two different formats: online or pen/paper. If you choose the online format, you will be taking the exams with ProctorU, our OPS vendor, using your home computer and webcam. If you choose the pen/paper format, you will select a proctor that meets our guidelines and we will send the exam booklet to that person once they are approved.

TECEP® exams are similar to final exams for college courses. Most have multiple-choice questions and some have short-answer or essay questions. They are graded on a Credit/No Credit basis and by passing you receive college credit.

Browse the TECEP® exams and find a subject in which you have some prior knowledge or experience. Then review the test description for that exam. A test description includes a list of exam topics, suggested study materials, information about the test format, and sample test questions. By reviewing the test description material you will know what to expect and how to prepare. Learn more about preparing for TECEP® exams

**UPPER LEVEL exams tagged as “upper level” are at the highest level of difficulty. They assume a student has knowledge equivalent to a student who has already taken college level courses or has in-depth knowledge in the subject. That said, there are no prerequisites or restrictions that would prevent anyone from attempting the tests!
