Course Credit - Credit by Examination
Undergraduate students at Texas A&M may earn course credits by demonstrating superior achievement on tests offered through several examination programs.
Credit by examination is available to freshmen who plan to enter the University and to students who are currently enrolled. Credit earned by examination does not contribute to a student's grade point ratio.
The University awards credit for scores on certain tests published by the Advanced Placement Program (AP), the College Level Examination Program Computer-Based Testing (CLEP CBT), the SAT Subject Tests, DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST) and the International Baccalaureate (IB) Program.
Texas A&M also offers qualified students opportunities to earn credits by taking departmental examinations prepared by the faculty.
Information concerning credit by examination may be obtained from Data and Research Services
Early Readiness High School Graduation Option
The Early Readiness option was created by House Bill 3 (81st Legislature). Under the provisions of the statute, research universities may partner directly with Texas school districts to offer an alternative route to a high school diploma to students who demonstrate early readiness for college.
