General Guidelines:

Credit will be awarded for examinations with grades of E or better.

To conduct an evaluation of credit for examinations, an official copy of the exam certificate must be submitted to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Please inquire with your examination board on how to submit your official exam results to Texas State University.

Exams administered by other boards will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis, including:

NOTE:  ELNA/ELADV are used to indicate that Texas State does not have an equivalent course. If your examination results transfer as ELNA/ELADV credit, you will need to consult with your advisor regarding how to utilize that credit in your degree plan.
