College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Undergraduate 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 the Assistant Dean of their major/program (Day students). Evening and Online students must obtain the permission from their Academic Adviser to determine which examinations are acceptable, the signature of approval must be executed on the CLEP Application form.
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. There are CLEP Examination restrictions and passing score requirements outlined on the CLEP website.
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. If these deadlines are not met, graduation will be postponed to the next conferral date.
All CLEP Examination instructions can be found on the College of Professional and Continuing Studies website at www.lasalle.edu/schools/cpcs/, click on Academic Resources and select CLEP.
