Advanced Placement (AP) Examination Credit
Students receive credit for all Advanced Placement (AP) scores of 3 or above. Departments are encouraged to identify specific major and General Education course credits, rather than "free electives," for the AP exams relevant to their disciplines.
Departments' AP policies are examined during the course of their normal review process.
