Credit by Examination

A degree-seeking student may petition to obtain credit for a course by taking an examination; however, not all programs will accept CBE. It is the student’s responsibility to verify the applicability of CBE courses for major/minor requirements. The relevant department must agree to create and grade the examination. If a student takes CBE in a course that he/she has already taken for credit, the grade for CBE will not replace the grade for the previous course. The fee for CBE is based on the current rate of tuition according to level (undergraduate/graduate) and residency status.
