AP Psychology and CLEP Guidelines


Incoming students may satisfy the Psychology 101 prerequisite requirement by obtaining either a grade of 4 or 5 on the Advanced Placement Psychology Examination or a grade of 55 or better on the CLEP (College Level Examination Program) examination.

At least two weeks before college registration, students who meet this criterion must have the testing center provide proof of the grade to the Queens College Registrar in order to have this information placed on the student’s transcript. ONLY THEN will the computer recognize that the Psychology 101 prerequisite has been met.

Once a student is enrolled at Queens College, they may not use the CLEP exam as a substitute for Psychology 101.
