Advanced Placement

Students who have taken an Advanced Placement Exam and earned composite scores of 3, 4, or 5 may be granted credit. Credit will be treated as transfer credit without a grade but will count toward graduation, and may be used in fulfilling specific curriculum requirements. The head of the department in which the course is offered will determine the amount of the credit and the equivalent university courses for which credit will be granted.
