ADVANCED PLACEMENT (AP)

AP scores will be evaluated when received from the College Board in early July. Students will receive communication from the Office of Undergraduate Academics regarding their scores and the courses for which they will receive credit.  If credit is given for a first semester course, the Registrar's Office will move the student on to the next level of that course.  If the student prefers to repeat that course (as a refresher or to help her/his GPA), the student should notify Joel Todd, Assistant Director of Undergraduate Academics in order to get her/his schedule modified.  If credit is received for a course that is taken after the first semester, the student should discuss future semester scheduling with her/his faculty advisor. Click here to view the list of courses for which you may receive credit if you earned a 4 or a 5 on the AP exam.

*If a student earned a score of 4 or 5 on one or more AP exams and does not receive notification from the Office of Undergraduate Academics by August 3, 2015, please contact Joel Todd.”
