CREDIT BY EXAM

The credit by examination program provides an opportunity for Brazosport College students to complete special examinations in order to establish credit for specified courses.

Two types of examinations are used – locally prepared Departmental Credit by Exams and Nationally Standardized Exams such as those published by the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP).

To apply for a Credit by Exam, a student MUST complete a Brazosport College Credit by Examination Petition online or in the Assessment Center office E129e.

Regulations

1. Credit by examination may be awarded to students who earn satisfactory scores on specific tests and upon successful completion of a minimum 6 semester credit hours earned at Brazosport College before credit will be posted to the student's transcript.

2. Credits may be earned for not more than two courses by examination in one discipline. The Division Chairman shall recommend to the Curriculum and Instruction Committee those courses considered to be from the same discipline within a division.

3. A maximum of 24 hours may be earned through any combination of CLEP, Credit by Exam or Advanced Placements tests. Deviations in exceptional cases may be granted upon recommendation of the appropriate Division Chair and/or Dean, Vice President, and approval of the President.

4. A student who wishes to satisfy course prerequisites by examination must complete the examination satisfactorily before registering for advanced courses except with special permission of the appropriate Dean.

5. Examination for credit for any approved single course may be retaken only once. Any retake cannot be scheduled sooner than 30 days following the date of the initial attempt. The CLEP examination may not be repeated for six months of the test date.
