College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Examination Credit

The College recognizes the College Board Advanced Placement Examination Program as a means of evaluating a student’s eligibility for advanced placement and credit transfer. Matriculated students who have participated in the AP Program and have been admitted to the College should have official AP grade reports forwarded directly to the College Admissions Office. These grade reports should come from the College Board, Advanced Placement Examinations, CN6671, Princeton, NJ 08541-6671, telephone number 609.771.7300.

Upon receipt of the student’s AP grade reports, the Admissions Office will assess the grade and recommend to the Vice President of Academic Affairs credits to be transferred based on the College’s policies relating to the AP scores for the various exam subjects. The minimum score to receive credit varies from 3 to 5. No credit is awarded on any AP exam score of less than 3. The policy stating the specific exam scores for each subject area may be reviewed at either the Admissions or Registrar’s Office.
