NOTE: Credit for NO MORE THAN SIX electives may be gained by any combination of AP, placement, accreditation, IB, or other examinations.

AP in any language: A score of 3 meets the College language competency requirement; however, no credit is granted.

AP Chemistry, Physics, or Calculus: Students who register for General Chemistry, Physics, or Calculus must forego AP credit.

* Students with AP 4 who plan to concentrate in the biological sciences or prepare for the health professions must register for a Fundamental Sequence (BIOS 20180s or 20190s). These students may use their AP credit in electives. Students with AP 5 place out of the general education requirement and into the two-quarter "AP Fundamental Sequence" beginning with BIOS 20239.

† A student who wishes to receive credit for MATH 15300 or to register either for MATH 16100-16200-16300 or for PHYS 14100-14200-14300, or both, is required to take the calculus placement text during Orientation.

‡ Note that a concentration in physics requires PHYS 13100-13200-13300 or PHYS 14100-14200-14300.

§ No credit is given for Computer Science A, Environmental Science, or Psychology.
