Credit by Examination

Undergraduate students at The University of Texas at Brownsville may earn course credit by demonstrating their skills through testing. Some students may have taken college-level courses while in high school or may have mastered subject areas in nontraditional ways.

Credit hours earned through examination will appear on a student's transcript as credit only. No letter grade is awarded for credit earned through examination.

Eligibility for Credit by Examination

All former and current students are eligible for credit. New students may be eligible provided they are enrolled for the next regular enrollment period (semester, quarter, or summer session) and are not, at that time, concurrently enrolled in high school.
