Return to Standardized Test and Acceptance Policy

Advanced Placement (AP) Exam Policy

Students completing AP exams must submit an official score report for all exams taken and send them to Holy Apostles for review.  Students earning a score of a 4 or 5 on an AP exam will receive 3-credits per test for a maximum of 15 credits applied towards their Associate of Arts degree or their Bachelor of Arts degree.  The credit placement on the student’s degree plan will be individualized based on the major the student pursues.

AP credits count against the number of transferred credits allowed.  If the number of AP credits combined with the credits transferred from other programs exceeds the number of transfer credits allowed, Holy Apostles may instead waive the requirement for the student to take a course in the AP subject area and allow the student to replace it with a different course within the program.

The following AP exams will be accepted for transferable credit at Holy Apostles.
