Policies governing minimum required scores and the acceptance of credit are established by the appropriate academic departments. LSU will review CLEP scores that have been sent directly from College Board to the University (credit is not allowed for CLEP general examinations). Departmental course credit recommendations for satisfactory scores on CLEP subject examinations are included in the table provided. Department recommendations and credit given for CLEP scores are subject to change. Contact the Office of Enrollment Management for current recommendations and information on general program data and policies.
Please note: The credit posted on this chart is for CLEP exams taken in the 2014-2015 academic year (August 2014-July 2015) only. Courses listed are subject to change after being reviewed yearly. For credit awarded in previous years, use the General Catalog. Select the specific year, then select Undergraduate Admissions in the left menu, then Other Enrollment Opportunities.
