Advanced Placement/International Baccalaureate Credit

AP Chart    IB Chart

PLEASE NOTE THAT CREDITS CAN ONLY BE POSTED BEFORE GRADUATING FROM WESLEYAN.

While a maximum of two credits earned before matriculation by entering first-year students may count toward the Wesleyan degree, all such credits that have been duly approved by Wesleyan departments will be listed on the student's transcript. This applies to Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate, and Advance-Level exams, as well as any college-level courses taken with college students and taught by a college teacher in a college setting, provided that the course meets Wesleyan's transfer credit criteria. Aside from AP credits and other credits regularly awarded on the basis of centrally administered examinations, no course that is listed for credit on a student's high school transcript may be used for Wesleyan credit.

Questions about Advance-Level Exams should be directed to the department in which the subject exam was taken.

Requesting Advanced Placement Credit

PLEASE NOTE THAT CREDITS CAN ONLY BE POSTED BEFORE GRADUATING FROM WESLEYAN.

A student who completed an Advanced Placement course in secondary school and has achieved a score of 4 (honors) or 5 (high honors) in the Advanced Placement examination may be awarded credit after satisfaction of the relevant department's requirements.  The precise number of credits will be determined at the discretion of the relevant department.  The department may condition the award of Advanced Placement credit upon successful completion of any course or courses at any level in any department of the University. 

For students entering in or after the fall 2000, a maximum of two credits of any kind (including AP credit) earned prior to matriculation will apply towards graduation.  While a maximum of two credits will be counted toward the Wesleyan degree, all such credits that have been duly approved by Wesleyan departments will be listed on the student's transcript.

Your AP scores must be on file before credit can be awarded.  For copies of your report, WRITE: AP Exams, P.O.
