Credit by Examination


Undergraduate Admissions  > Evaluation of Credits > Credit by Examination

The University of Houston awards course credit based on scores earned on Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), SAT II Subject Tests, International Baccalaureate (IB) tests, Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Educational Support (DANTES), and UH departmental examinations.

Each course credit equivalency is evaluated by the appropriate department and college to determine whether the work and credit are of suitable content and rigor. The list of courses for which credit may be awarded, the minimum exam score requirements, the number of credit hours approved for test credit, and the policies associated with the awarding of test credit are approved by the Undergraduate Committee and published in the University of Houston Undergraduate Catalog. Students are encouraged to consult the UH Undergraduate Catalog to understand related policies.

Specific procedures for claiming credit by examination, including the testing schedule, eligibility requirements, test descriptions, sample questions, and test fee amounts, are updated and published on the UH Testing Services website.

Eligibility

  • Any current or former University of Houston student may attempt to earn UH credit based on performance on an appropriate examination for any required or elective undergraduate course for which UH offers credit.
  • Prospective students may take examinations to establish their eligibility to receive credit or placement; however, credit is awarded only to officially enrolled students and former students.
  • Official test scores must be sent to the University of Houston by the last official class day in the semester the student is graduating in order to evaluate and post the course credit.
  • Students must meet University of Houston’s minimum approved passing scores, as well as any other specific departmental requirements, in order for examination credit to be used toward a degree program. 

Credit Hour Policies

  • There is not a limit to the number of hours that may be earned through the CBE program.
  • Credits earned by examination do not impact the Repeat rule.
  • Credit by examination that does not apply towards a student’s degree plan may make him or her ineligible for a tuition rebate. Review the Tuition Rebate guidelines for details.

Grades

A grade of CR (credit) will be assigned where applicable, will not carry grade points, will not be used to calculate a grade point average, cannot be translated into letter grades (e.g., A, B, C, D, or F), and will not replace any existing course grade earned at University of Houston, in high school, or at another college or university.

Degree Requirements

  • Credit earned by examination satisfies degree requirements in the same way as credit earned by passing a course, except that it does not count as credit earned in residence.
  • Students should confer with an academic advisor to determine whether credit earned by examination or by course is best for their degree objectives.
  • If a student takes a duplicate examination for the same subject content, credit will only be awarded once.

Fees

Credit by examination fees are used to support test administration, preparation and selection of examinations, scoring, analysis, and reporting. Examination fees are approved through the appropriate fee approval process at the university and collected by UH Testing Services or academic departments. 

Scholarship Eligibility

Credit earned by examination does not jeopardize eligibility for scholarships that require freshman standing

Exceptions

  • Academic deans may approve exceptions to the course placement and credit by examination policies for compelling academic reasons. If the exception involves the student’s eligibility to be tested or to receive credit by examination in a particular course, the exception must also be approved by the department in which the course is offered and the Office of the Provost.
  • Additional eligibility requirements may be established by the academic department awarding credit, with the approval of the Dean of the college and approved by the Undergraduate Committee.

Submitting Scores

Only University of Houston administrations of appropriate tests or official score reports from an approved testing agency are acceptable for credit, (e.g., official reports from the Educational Testing Service (ETS) are required for the College Board CLEP Tests and the Advanced Placement Program). Informal score reports or results of special administrations of national tests from other institutions are not accepted for credit.

Credit by Exam
All Credit by Examination Policies are Subject to Change.

CREDIT BY EXAMINATION FOR AMERICAN SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETING PROGRAM (ASLI)
ASLI faculty offers a comprehensive testing system that measures the ability of students to express and also comprehend American Sign Language. The test will consist of three components:

Proficiency interview (question and answer) facilitated by a UH ASLI Faculty member;

Written component requiring students demonstrate the ability to comprehend aspects of language (i.e. vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, finger spelling and numbers) and knowledge of cultural components taught in the desired level of ASL being tested;

Expressive component requiring students demonstrate the ability to produce a narrative in American Sign Language, using language components as taught in the desired level of ASL being tested.

The Proficiency Interview will be conducted in accordance with the standards set by the American Sign Language Proficiency Interview (ASLPI) evaluation tool. Students will be awarded an overall proficiency level of 0-5 (explanations of levels available at: http://www.gallaudet.edu/the-american-sign-language-proficiency-interview/aslpi/aslpi-video-samples-level-0-5).

Written and Expressive scores vary based on the typical course expectations for students and the need for increased language ability required in higher-level ASL courses. The combined interview (ASLPI), written component and expressive component will be graded-see chart below for a list of minimum passing scores.
