What exam credit will transfer to the new CEBS?
In order to earn your CEBS credential, you can complete courses in the former program, or you can choose to take courses in the new program. All students who have passed GBA 1, GBA 2, RPA 1, and/or RPA 2 will be given credit for these courses in the new curriculum. All other CEBS courses are no longer part of the redesigned CEBS model.
Note: There is no longer a deadline for starting a course in the new curriculum. You will not lose credit for any of the courses you previously passed that are transferable from the former curriculum to the eligible courses in the new.
