Students who possess prior flight experience may obtain advanced standing credit after passing an appropriate examination. They are normally given an evaluation by the Department and are then given credit for their rating(s) after completing the next level of rating/certification at Louisiana Tech University. For example, a student enrolling at Tech with a Private Pilot Certificate will be given credit for that level after completing the Instrument Rating.
