High School AP Credit

Advanced Placement Credit

High school students who successfully complete The College Board Advanced Placement (AP) examinations may earn college credit at the University of Saint Francis.  The university grants college credit for AP examination scores of 3, 4 or 5 in accordance with the American Council on Education recommendation. Students seeking AP credits are responsible for requesting the College Board to send their official AP examination score report to the Registrar‘s Office.  No grade is assigned for courses in which the student is awarded Advanced Placement credit, and these courses are not included in the student’s grade point average.  The student has the option of declining all or part of the Advanced Placement credit awards.  In some cases, credit is awarded for a course included in the curriculum of the student’s major area of study.  In other cases, credit is awarded for either a course in the general education curriculum or a general elective course.
