High school students who take advanced placement (AP) courses are encouraged to take the CEEB (College Entrance Examination Board) advanced placement examinations and have their scores sent to the University of Saint Francis. The university grants college credit for CEEB examination scores of 3, 4 or 5 in accordance with the American Council on Education recommendation.
Students seeking AP credits are responsible for requesting the Educational Testing Service (ETS) to send their AP exam scores to the Registrar’s office. No grade is assigned for courses in which the student is awarded advanced placement credit, and these courses are not included in the student’s grade point average. The student has the option of declining all or part of the advanced placement credit awards. In some cases, credit is awarded for a particular course offered at the university. In others, credit is awarded for general education credits in a specific area of study.
Please note that some courses may be counted toward a student’s major and some courses may not.
