LCU offers students several testing opportunities through the Center for Student Success. The testing center administers several types of exams and services. Services offered include:
Credit by Examination Policy
Lubbock Christian University operates an open test center. It is open to all individuals.
The Lubbock Christian University credit-by-examination (CBE) program offers students the opportunity to earn course credit by achieving sufficient scores on various subject examinations. Thus, students who have acquired a sufficient amount of knowledge through independent study, reading, and experience may accelerate the degree completion process by earning credit(s) by examination.
Information on Credit by Exam and other opportunities for Advanced Credit can be found in the University Catalog.
All students who wish to take a CLEP exam must register online through the CLEP website. You must select the test you wish to take and pay your CLEP fee prior to your arrival in the Testing Center. It is your responsibility to register for the correct test. Study materials, frequently asked questions and other CLEP resources are located on the CLEP webpage.
LCU students should review the Credit by Exam Policy and seek guidance from their academic advisor to make sure the exam fits within their degree plan prior to purchasing the test.
