TAMU Departmental Credit By Exam
Students come to Texas A&M University at Galveston with a variety of educational experiences and backgrounds. In order to build upon this diversity, Texas A&M University encourages the use of Departmental Credit by Examination (CBE) opportunities to place students in the most advanced course for which they are prepared.
TAMU Credit By Examination is Currently Offered For the Following Courses:
Chemistry: 101/111, 102/112
Physics: 201, 202, 208, 218
Political Science: 206, 207
Languages: Spanish, French, German, Japanese
These examinations have been developed by TAMU Faculty members to ensure that all material covered during a normal semester is thoroughly incorporated into the test questions. We recommend students utilize CBE's instead of taking a course only if they feel fully prepared and knowledgeable about all of the course content. Students are advised to thoroughly study and prepare in advance before taking an exam. Students that earn a passing score will have course credit automatically applied to their transcripts. A non-refundable, non-transferable, testing placement fee is charged for attempting a TAMU CBE at the rate of $50.00 for all students. The fee is automatically applied to your student bill and payable to the TAMUG cashier in Financial Management Services (FMS) by cash, check, money order.
Please read all CBE Eligibility Requirements before applying.
