What is a CBE?

A Competency Based Exam (CBE) is a form of alternative credit offered to expedite your undergraduate degree. This alternative allows you to test out of a class and earn credit by taking an exam.  Registration into a CBE grants access to a self-directed study environment in which you can prepare for the exam. When you are ready to take the exam, you pay the exam fee ($250 for a 3 credit CBE) and schedule a virtual proctored exam using a web camera on a computer. We generally recommend that you attempt a CBE for a topic in which you are already familiar. CBE's should not generally be used if you have no prior knowledge of the topic. 

You get two chances to receive a grade of 70% or more on the exam in order to earn transfer credit.
