College Board Advanced Placement Tests

Students may earn credit for the following ASU courses by successful completion of Advanced Placement examinations administered by the College Board in participating high schools. A score of 3 or higher is required to receive credit. The same policy guidelines apply to these examinations as to other tests in the credit by examination program.

Credit earned by examination may not be used to reduce the residence requirements in any degree program. None of the examinations in the University’s Credit by Examination Program may be taken more than one time in a six-month period.
