AP Credit: Summary

Students may receive credit for Advanced Placement exams they complete in High School. Policies governing AP credits vary from department to department. In some cases a score of 3 or better on the AP exam may be enough to receive credit. In other cases, a 4 or better is required on the exam. In still other cases students need to take an additional course or to meet with a department advisor in order to receive credit. As a result, it is essential that you discuss AP credits with your Academic Advisor at orientation.

If you have not had your AP scores sent to the UM, go to the College Board AP Exam Grades web site: www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/ap/exgrd.html and click on "Grade Reporting Services," or call (888) 225-5427.

Your AP credit cannot count toward any LSA requirement other than the language requirement.
