Advanced Placement Credit


Freshmen are eligible to earn college credit through several programs. Advanced placement credit is offered to highly qualified high school students who have taken college-level courses in high school simultaneously with their other high school courses. These students may earn automatic credit at UL Lafayette based on their scores on the College Entrance Examination Board's Advanced Placement examinations given in May each year. The subjects, score requirements, and credits awarded are detailed in Section VIII of "Rules and Regulations"  in this Catalog.

First-time freshmen who have special competence in a given academic area may also qualify for college credit through the University's own Advance Credit Exam program. Generally, ACT scores serve as a guide to eligibility for this program, and credit may be automatic or may depend on successful completion of oral and/or written examinations conducted by the academic department in question.

Students may also be eligible for college credit if they have participated in the College Board's "College Level Examination Program" (CLEP), the College Level GED program, the ACT Proficiency Examination Program (PEP), or another similar advanced placement program. The UL Lafayette Office of Admissions evaluates such tests for possible credit.

Additional information about all advanced placement programs is contained in Section VIII of "Rules and Regulations"  in this Catalog.
