Credit by Exam

The Academic Services Office provides Credit By Exam (CBE) opportunities for students to earn Texas A&M at Qatar course credit by demonstrating mastery of previously studied material.  Students who have taken Advanced Placement (AP) courses, or have completed coursework at other universities prior to transferring to TAMUQ, are ideal candidates for Credit by Exam.

CBE tests are difficult; they should not be viewed as a substitute for learning subject matter, as courses offered for CBE are prerequisites for courses in the engineering curriculum.  These exams are designed to test material that has been previously studied, so there are no study guides or sample tests available. Students considering attempting CBE should review the course syllabus and textbook for insight into test content. 

For questions or more information regarding CBE, please contact:
