I. GENERAL REGULATIONS  

  1. The maximum credit allowed through any combination of exams is 32 semester hours. Credit allowances may vary with specific departments and individual exams.  
  2. A Grade of CR is awarded. Minimum score requirements are listed in Section VII.  
  3. Credit (CR) hours earned by examination will not be included in student’s GPA computation; however, the semester hours are counted for graduation.  
  4. Credit by examination is awarded and posted on a student’s transcript only after the student has earned six college-level semester hours at San Antonio College.  
  5. Only credit by examination grades of C or higher or CR designations are recorded on a student’s transcript.  
  6. Credit by examination may not be earned for any course a student has already completed in the classroom.  
  7. A student enrolled in a course for which credit by examination is sought must: 1. Withdraw from the course by the census date.  
  8. A student who enrolled but did not complete a course in a previous semester/session is eligible for credit by exam in the non-completed course, provided at least six months have elapsed since the specific semester ended.  
  9. A student who receives credit by exam may choose to not have it posted on his/her transcript and instead take its respective class for credit.  
  10. Credit by exam awarded by San Antonio College applies to its program of study; such credit may transfer to other institutions according to the policies of the receiving institution.
