What exam credit will transfer to the new CEBS?
In order to earn your CEBS credential, you can 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.

completed courses apply to 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 tracks. All other CEBS courses are no longer part of the redesigned CEBS model. 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.
Keep in mind these important points as you make your next move:
- If you have credit (pass grade) for GBA 1 and GBA 2, you can earn your GBA designation by completing the GBA/ RPA 3 course in the new curriculum.
- If you have credit for RPA 1 and RPA 2, you can earn your RPA designation by completing the GBA/RPA 3 course in the new curriculum.
- If you elect to finish your GBA, RPA or both under the former curriculum, you will still need to take GBA/RPA 3 if you want to complete your CEBS under the new CEBS model.
- Testing on courses in the former program ended on March 31, 2018.
- To retain credit (pass grade) for any of the GBA and RPA courses transferred into the new track, you will need to pass any course in the new track by December 31, 2018. After that time, if you have not completed your CEBS designation or a course in the new track, credit for any courses completed in the former curriculum will expire and will no longer count toward completion of a course in the new CEBS program.
