Advanced Placement Credit

Advanced placement in pre-professional subjects is accepted under the following guidelines:

  1. Student scores a minimum of three in subject examinations (test scored 1 to 5).
  2. Student earns a minimum grade of "B" in the College Level Examination Program subject examinations.
  3. For advanced placement policies of institutions for ACT and SAT credit, student scores a minimum 90 percentile (college-bound norms).
