Advanced Placement Credit
Students may receive academic hours of credit for some Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate courses. Credits awarded may be used toward graduation requirements, with some limits. To be considered for credit and/or placement, students must ask the appropriate testing service to send the Office of Undergraduate Admissions their official test results. Generally, scores from the senior year of high school reach Admissions in late July. Credits are posted to a student’s records in ConnectCarolina usually by the end of the first week of the Fall term. Score reports for exams taken before the senior year must also be sent directly to Admissions from the testing service once a student is admitted; junior year scores sent prior to admission are not retained. The table of scores, tests, and credits awarded can be found on the Admissions website. Minimum scores for placement are determined by the faculty in the appropriate academic departments and may change from year to year.
