The following is a list of Subject Examinations of the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) for which Living University may award academic credit. In order to receive credit for a CLEP subject exam, you must achieve the required raw score. LU does not grant credit for a CLEP exam if you’ve already attempted a college-level course closely aligned with that exam. For example, if you successfully completed English 111 or a comparable course on another campus, you are not permitted to receive CLEP credit in that subject as well. LU does not permit you to earn CLEP credit for a course that you failed.

Subject examinations that are repeated within less than one year from the date of previous testing will not be considered for credit. Credits earned through CLEP will be posted on a student’s transcript. Grades are not recorded and a student’s GPA will not be affected. Duplicate credit is not awarded in any case. CLEP credits earned at other institutions will be evaluated in the same manner as the equivalent courses at those institutions. The same policies and procedures used in evaluating the applicability of other advanced-standing and transfer credits toward a degree will be applied.
