Testing

The Center for Academic Success offers the following standardized tests: ACT, CLEP, DSST, and MAT.

 

ACT

Freed Hardeman is an approved residual ACT testing center.  Tests are given to prospective students to gain admission.  A student must have applied for admission before taking the Residual ACT. Scores from a residual testing center may be used only at the institution where the test is given. A student is allowed to take the residual ACT twice for the purpose of admission to the university. Residual testing may not be used for athletic eligibility or the HOPE scholarship program.

The ACT is also given to currently enrolled students who need to gain entrance into the teacher education program.  Unofficial scores are mailed to the student as soon as possible following testing.  Students must wait 60 days before retaking the residual ACT.

CLEP

The CLEP is used for college equivalency credits and is administered on an appointment basis. There are 33 subject exams administered on the computer, each with a 90 minute time limit. The scores are available to candidates upon completion of exam. Candidates should check with their adviser or the institution granting credit to determine the specific CLEP policy, as each institution determines which exams are accepted and what constitutes a passing score.

DSST

The DSST (formerly known as DANTES) is a credit-by-examination testing program to measure knowledge in a particular subject area. There are 37 test titles in a wide range of college-level academic, technical, and business subjects. Each test is administered on the computer.  Each institution may determine its passing score requirements for the DSST.
