Testing for Credit

Testing for Credit

​CLEP® and DSST® are test-for-credit programs designed to offer college credit for accumulated knowledge and experience through examination. The Testing Center at Rowan College issues both CLEP and DSST exams. 

Advanced Placement (AP) exams can also be used to earn college credit. AP Exams are issued by high schools as a part of the Advanced Placement course.
