Incoming students can earn credit for select courses at Lawrence Technological University by taking the tests associated with AP courses and IB courses in high school, and CLEP exams. If you would like to know how/if specific credit will apply to your intended major, you can reference the corresponding flowchart.
Advanced Placement (AP) Credit
Students who take AP course(s) in high school and take the corresponding exam may be eligible for credit towards their intended degree program at Lawrence Tech. Please review our AP Guidelines to see what tests are accepted by LTU, and the score(s) needed to transfer credit. Please note that not every AP test you take will transfer to Lawrence Tech, even if you earn the score necessary to transfer, as AP credit is reviewed by degree program. For example, AP Government credit cannot transfer into Mechanical Engineering, because there are no general electives in the Mechanical Engineering program at LTU.
International Baccalaureate (IB) Credit
Scores on International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations will only be considered for Lawrence Tech credit if taken at the Higher Level (HL). Exams taken at the Standard Level (SL) are not eligible to transfer to Lawrence Tech. Please review our IB Guidelines to see what tests are accepted by LTU, and the score(s) needed to transfer credit.
College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Credit
Please review our CLEP Guidelines to see what tests are accepted, and the score(s) needed to transfer credit. Please be advised that CLEP credit is not offered to current LTU students, only incoming students.
If you have questions regarding any of these processes, please feel free to contact the Admissions Office at 248.204.3160 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
