AP, IB, & Advanced Credit

Advanced Placement (AP) Credit

Students who have taken Advanced Placement courses in secondary school and wish to be considered for advanced credit or placement must take The College Board’s Advanced Placement tests. All entering students who submit a score of ‘4’ or ‘5’ on these tests may receive one course credit for each tested area toward the 32-course graduation requirement. Course credit for advanced placement will be lost if a student takes the equivalent course at Gettysburg.
