Departmental Exams

If a student has experience equivalent to the content of a course described in the current catalog, upon approval of the department, credit may be earned for the course by passing an examination equivalent to a final course examination.

Students must receive departmental approval for any Baylor departmental exam. The CBE fee ($205 for Academic Year 2021-22) will be added to the student's Baylor account when the permission slip is submitted. Baylor's Credit by Exam policies are available at CBE Policies.
