Credit By Exam and Credit Recovery
What is Credit by Exam (CBE)?
Offers students the opportunity to gain course credit in the subject area(s) being tested. CBE's may be taken with or without prior instruction, and testing is free for all enrolled SBISD students.
Fall and spring exams are administered at the student’s home campus; summer exams are administered at the SBISD administration building.
CBE is available to those students who qualify through an approval process.

Speak with the SHS department lead teacher for the subject area that you would like to take a credit by exam for original credit.
For questions about how taking a CBE will affect GPA, class rank, and course credit, contact the campus registrar.
What is Credit Recovery?
Credit Recovery is an opportunity given to a student who has failed a course. The student is given the opportunity based on 70% mastery and the opportunity to recover previously failed credit for a specific couse. The process for credit recovery is done on an individual basis.

A student can take the CBE for a foreign language. This usually applies to students who are fluent in another language beyond English (read, write, and speak). There are certain times of the year that CBE's can be given on campus at SHS (typically Spanish, French, German). If you have another language beyond those given/offered at SHS, please contact the SBISD Welcome Center/LOTE Department for more information.
