LeTourneau University recognizes that many students have gained academic achievement in certain subject areas prior to entering an institution of higher education. LeTourneau University awards credit for courses as specified below for the Advanced Placement (AP) Program of The College Board, the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Program. Students may transfer college credit from other institutions accredited by one of the six U.S. regional accrediting associations.
In addition, credit may be awarded for service related experiences such as those evaluated in the Guide to the Evaluation of Education Experiences in the Armed Services. Credit should be established prior to enrollment and must be established by the end of the student's first year at LeTourneau University.
Credit may also be awarded for department examinations on which the students earned a grade of C or higher. Credit for a limited number of courses as determined by each department is available through a departmental examination. The student must get permission to take the examination by obtaining the required signatures on the Request for Credit by Departmental Examination form. If approval is granted, the student must pay the departmental examination fee, after which the examination will be administered and results reported to the Office of the Registrar. The examination for a given course may be taken only once.
