Austin Students Can Earn Course Credit by Exam

Austin ISD students in middle and high school can earn academic credit by taking an examination. Credit by Examination (CBE) for Acceleration will be administered June 14, 15, 16, at Austin High School.

Students in grades 6-12 — seeking credit for a course in which they have had no prior instruction — may take an exam with the approval of their campus counselor. Students must score 90 or above to pass and earn credit.

Students must register for the exams through their campus registrar or counselor by Friday, May 6. Registration forms, subjects available, and study guides are available from a campus counselor. Exams are administered free of charge during this group administration.

For more information, students must contact their school counselor, or call the Austin ISD Office of Systemwide Testing at 414-1755.
