A student will not be allowed to receive credit on the CLEP Exam if he/she has passed, failed, or withdrawn from the Tech equivalent course(s) or if he/she is presently enrolled in the course.

*CLEP examinations will not be accepted for credit for any 300-400 level business course for students enrolled in the College of Administration and Business at Louisiana Tech.

**Students testing for non-Louisiana Tech credit will need to contact their educational institution for qualifying exams and minimum scores requirements.

NOTE: The final determination of how CLEP credit may be awarded at Louisiana Tech University will be determined by the academic area responsible for the student's degree program. Additional concerns or questions should be directed to the dean of the school in which the student is enrolled. It is advisable to check with your academic dean before taking a CLEP test.

ACE recommends a uniform credit-granting score of 50 on most all subjects.
