Advanced Placement Exam

The University will grant credit for successful completion of Advanced Placement courses and examinations taken during high school on the following basis:

  1. The passing level for all examinations is a score of 3, 4, or 5.
  2. The transcript will indicate that AP credits have been completed by examination. Students must have official scores sent directly to the Registrar for evaluation.
  3. Maximum of 6 hours of AP history and government credit will be applied toward a history or social science major or minor.

AP examinations are taken by students in high school and credits are evaluated and transferred as part of the admissions process. These credits are recorded on the transcript and are available to the student and academic advisor through the web portal. There is no fee for recording these credits. A detailed list of the AP examinations, the required scaled score, and the credit award is available on the University's website and from the Registrar.
