Advanced Placement

The Registrar's Office will automatically award the student one course credit toward graduation for a score of 4 or 5 in the American or European history AP exam. If a 4 or 5 is achieved in both fields, then two course credits are awarded. The credit or credits will be recorded without grade on the student's academic transcript, and no action is required by the student.

Under special circumstances, credit towards graduation can be given for college-level work done in an institution or program of higher learning while the student was still enrolled in secondary school. (See the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate Education for further information on these special circumstances).

The student should note that none of the above-mentioned credits can be counted towards the requirements for the history major, even when they are included among the total number of courses (34) required for the BA degree.
