Grades and Credit by Examination

You can view your grades online at MyCSUEB approximately 7-10 days after the close of the quarter. Undergraduate students may also earn course credit by taking exams to achieve course content to complete a requirement.


You may check your grades in your MyCSUEB student account. Grades are official after the end of each quarter term. See the Academic Calendar section in the University Calendar for grade posting dates.

Credit by Examination

Credit by Examination is an option available only to undergraduate students. You may request to challenge courses because of special studies or experiences. A challenge consists of taking an examination on the course material rather than taking the whole class. Challenged courses earn university credit, but do not earn residence credit. See the department for more information and assistance.

How to Obtain Credit By Examination

Enroll in the class through MyCSUEB during the enrollment period. Attend class and work with the faculty to secure approval for enrolling in the class and satisfying requirements through credit by examination. Credit by examination forms are available only at the department office. On the form, obtain signature approval from both the faculty for the class and the department chair.

You must take the examination and receive a grade before the end of the Add/Drop Period. Some departments only permit credit/no credit (CR/NC) challenges. If you earn a grade of C- or better, or CR, the earned grade will appear on your record, along with a notation of credit by examination. If you earn a grade of D+ or lower, or NC, you may continue attendance or officially drop the class during the Add/Drop Period.
