College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

  • The college participates in the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), which is administered by the College Board. Candidates for admission who have been out of school five years or more and who have not attended college may receive degree credit based on the CLEP General Examination before their admission to the university. Candidates for admission may earn a maximum of 24.0 credits for the CLEP Subject Examinations approved by the colleges, provided they achieve a score at or above the 50th percentile.

International Baccalaureate (IB)

Credit for Prior Learning

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 several methods whereby the student may obtain credit for prior learning:

For more specific information about credit for prior learning and for information on fees, eligibility, and the level of achievement required, students should consult the Office of Academic Services, Rm. 312 Hill Hall.

International

Students who are transferring to Rutgers University- Newark from a school outside of the United States, must have their official transcripts sent to a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) organization.

International credits are accepted but any courses to be used for the major must be evaluated by the individual departments and students are responsible for submitting as much supportive documentation as possible such as:

  • syllabi
  • course descriptions
  • examples of class assignments

Please click for a complete list of NACES members.

International students must test for English and take English Composition I and II.

Please note:

  • For those students who attended both types of institutions, the total number of credits may not exceed 90.0 credits, 63.0 of which may be from a two-year college.
  • Transfer credits will only be accepted from Regionally Accredited Institutions
  • Only college-level courses with a grade of C or better may be transferable
