Students can earn advanced placement based on AP examinations, SAT II
Subject Tests, International Baccalaureate (higher level) examinations,
British A-level examinations, and placement tests offered at the
University. The minimum scores required to earn advanced placement in each
subject area can be found here.
Advanced placement credits may be used in three ways: to enter
upper-level courses, to fulfill the foreign language requirement, and to
become eligible for graduation in three or three and a half years. Advanced
placement may not be used to fulfill the writing requirement, to make up
course deficiencies, to reduce the course load in a given term, or to
fulfill the distribution requirements.
