DBU Partners with Classic Learning Test (CLT)


Dallas Baptist University has partnered with the Classic Learning Test (CLT) to host a sponsored test on April 17 and will offer the test free of charge for all traditional UG admissions applicants.

The Classic Learning Test (CLT) may be newer to the college entrance exam world, but it has quickly become more and more accepted as an entrance exam for college and university admissions offices along with the standard SAT and ACT exams. As a premier partner, DBU began recognizing the CLT as an acceptable entrance exam for admissions in 2019 and has continued to strengthen the partnership ever since in new and innovative ways. Dr. Adam C. Wright, DBU President, is a member of the CLT board, and DBU serves as an annual sponsor for the exam.

“The partnership DBU has with Jeremy Tate and the Classic Learning Test is critical to advancing our mission to produce servant leaders through a Christ-centered, world-class education on University Hill,” says Jonathan Teat, DBU Vice President for Administration and Enrollment. “Recognizing our mutual alignment in purpose, DBU and CLT are resolved to press forward together in the work of Christian higher education, for the glory of God alone.”

The CLT is currently remote proctored and taken at students’ homes; in-person proctoring at select test sites is slated to begin in the fall of 2021, with several schools planning to provide the exam in-person on "Partner Schools Only" dates. The CLT takes approximately two hours to complete and assesses verbal and quantitative reasoning and grammar/writing. Scores are received within 10 business days and are instantly shareable with any number of colleges and universities at no cost. Students who take the CLT10 are also eligible for academic scholarships at partnering colleges, including DBU. 

Students interested in taking the CLT for free as part of the upcoming test date sponsored by Dallas Baptist University should contact DBU’s Office of Admissions at admissions@dbu.edu or by calling (214) 333-5360.
