CLEP, AP, IB Diploma

Special examinations provide students an opportunity to establish credit for certain courses.  Credit may be earned by Advanced Placement Exams, CLEP Exams, departmental exams, and International Baccalaureate Diploma Program Exams.

To apply for credit by examination, students must complete a petition for credit by examination in the Counseling and Testing Office.  A minimum of 6 semester credit hours must be earned at Brazosport College before credit will be posted to the student's transcript.  A maximum of 24 hours may be earned by exam.

High school students enrolled in approved concurrent/dual credit courses under agreement between the college and one of the service area school districts may gain credit for college courses without restriction on the total number of hours earned through such successful course completion..
