Credit-by-Exam/Off Campus Learning

Credit earned through examination may be awarded Texas State transfer credit when listed on an official transcript of the college or university where the student has been enrolled.  Such credits are evaluated by transfer credit criteria and awarded grades of credit (CR) only.  Credit by exam satisfies degree requirements in the same way as credit earned by passing courses except it does not count as credit earned in residence.  This also applies to students who received credit-by-examination from high school.  For further information contact the Testing, Research-Support and Evaluation Center at 512-245-2276 or
