Advanced Placement

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.
