Test Out If a CLEP test is not available for a specific course, students may receive advance standing for knowledge and competencies obtained through prior education and/or work experience. Students must register for the class they wish to test out of prior to testing out. Contact a Southwest Tech Advisor to learn more.
Test Passed: A 40% test out fee is charged to the student's account. (This is in addition to the full tuition already billed.)
Test Not Passed: A 40% test out fee is charged to the student's account. (This is in addition to the full tuition already billed.)
Portfolio Once accepted into a program, students may also earn transfer credits for their experiences through an Experiential Learning Portfolio by enrolling in the one credit Portfolio course. Students create a portfolio of experiences, education, training and other learning gained outside the classroom. Credit will be awarded if the student can show 80% of the competencies have been achieved. Contact your Southwest Tech Advisor to learn more.
