Students may receive credit for approved courses taught in the La Salle University curriculum through participation in the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) of the College Entrance Examination Board. Students who wish to attempt credit through examination must receive permission from their Dean’s office to determine which examinations are acceptable to La Salle and to obtain permission for participation availability.
While the academic Dean determines the credits to be granted for CLEP, the individual department designates the subject examinations, which are applicable to specific courses at La Salle University. Students may not be granted credit for a general examination CLEP course after completion of the freshman year, and a student who has received credit through conventional courses or through standardized testing for one or more advanced courses in a discipline may not challenge a beginning course in that discipline. No grades are assigned to courses credited through CLEP.
All CLEP exams must be taken by July 15 (summer semester), Nov. 15 (fall semester), or April 15 (spring semester) in order for those credits to be included in that particular semester. Any CLEP exam taken after those dates will be counted toward the following semester’s coursework. If these
deadlines are not met, graduation will be postponed to the next conferral date.
