Students who are enrolled (matriculated) at UB may earn course credit by passing examinations administered by UB academic departments. These exams are comparable to final examinations. Departments determine whether to administer such examinations for their courses. Students applying for these exams must have a minimum overall GPA of 2.0 and cannot be graduating seniors. UB college examination credit will not be awarded for exams that duplicate a college course, or its equivalent, for which a student has previously received credit. UB college examination credit will not be awarded for exams when a student has completed more advanced study beyond the level covered by an exam. Students who wish to determine their eligibility for these examinations should meet with an advisor who can verify their eligibility for exams on the Application for Undergraduate Credit by Examination (PDF). Students must also talk to the academic departments about availability of exams and then follow instructions on the application form. A fee is charged.
