Bryan College Now Accepts CLT as Third Entrance Exam

December 9img_0780, 2016 – Bryan College announced that it will now begin accepting the Classic Learning Test (CLT) as a third entrance exam for prospective students.

“We are proud to accept the CLT as another option for our students,” said Joshua Hood, Director of Admissions at Bryan College. “The test designers created a very robust exam comparable to better known assessments; it’s very affordable and easily accessible with several test dates already published.”  

The CLT exam was designed by the Classic Learning Initiatives (CLI) to focus on classical learning objectives and to offer students an alternative to the SAT and ACT exams. The literary and mathematical questions on the CLT draw on the ideas of some of the greatest minds in Western history.

To date, Bryan College is the first and only college in Tennessee that accepts the CLT for admission acceptance.

Testing is offered five times a year with Bryan College available as an approved testing site. The test is taken online in the presence of a proctor and offers students immediate results upon completion.

“We are thrilled to offer to students the option of a standardized test which recognizes their values,” said Dr. Kevin Clauson, Vice President of Academics. “This is simply an extension of our goals to stand firm on the Word of God, teach a biblically-based Christian Worldview, and recognize the foundations of Western Civilization.”

Upcoming CLT Test Dates in 2017:

January 7 (register by December 31, 2016)

March 18 (register by March 8)
