AP credit

  • Acceptance of AP credit varies greatly from one medical school to another and many do not accept it at all. Schools that do accept AP credit either require or strongly suggest that applicants take another course(s) at the same or higher level of difficulty in the discipline. Therefore, you should plan to take two lab Biology courses, four lab Chemistry courses, and two lab Physics courses in college.
  • If you have AP credit in the sciences, you should speak with the Health Professions Advisor or the appropriate department chairperson before you make a decision on whether to bypass an introductory level course in the sciences.
