What CLEP exams does UT Austin recognize for credit?

Hook em Horns! Im aiming for UT Austin and heard that CLEP exams could be a way to earn credit before enrolling. Does anyone know if UT Austin recognizes all CLEP exams, or are there certain ones they prefer? Really hope someone can help!

Hey there! My son went through a similar process of figuring out which CLEP exams would be accepted at UT Austin. Their policy can change, but as of our last check, UT Austin did have a list of CLEP exams they award credit for. Each exam corresponds to different courses, and the required scores can also vary.

What's most important is to review UT Austin's current Undergraduate Catalog or contact their admissions office directly, as this will provide the most up-to-date information. Keep in mind that some departments may have restrictions on which CLEP credits they accept towards a major, so it's also worth discussing this with an academic advisor once you're admitted.

Oh, and don't forget to check if there are any limits on the total number of credits you can earn through CLEP exams. My son was able to get some general education requirements out of the way with his CLEP credits, which was a huge help. Best of luck, and I hope you'll be able to take advantage of those exams to ease your academic load!
