The Classic Learning Test (CLT) was developed as a greatly improved college entrance exam, taking advantage of contemporary technology and testing students on more engaging material. Additionally, students receive same-day test results, and can share their scores and essays with as many colleges as they choose.

For more information about adopting the CLT as an admissions exam at your institution, please contact us at See below for the latest list of colleges and universities that recognize the CLT.

"Based on the data currently collected and the analyses I have conducted on that data, I believe that colleges and universities can confidently use CLT scores for admissions decisions, and that the CLT will perform just as well as the SAT or ACT. CLT scores are highly correlated with both SAT and ACT scores, and correlate remarkably well with freshman GPA. Both of these are indicators that the CLT possesses high validity as well as reliability."
