Advanced Placement


The College may grant both placement and credit toward the undergraduate degree through the Advanced Placement Examinations of the College Entrance Examination Board. Advanced placement credit may be given for American history, art history, biology, chemistry, computer science, English literature and composition, European history, French language, American government and politics, Latin, mathematics, physics, and Spanish language. Acceptance of advanced placement credit is not automatic; petition for acceptance of AP credit must be made to the Academic Dean. A score of 4 or 5 in any of the above-listed fields will be granted liberal arts elective credit, to the limit of 9 semester hours towards fulfillment of degree requirements. On the recommendation of the relevant department chairman, the Academic Dean may grant credit toward fulfillment of certain departmental major requirements.
