Return to Standardized Test and Acceptance Policy

Advanced Placement (AP) Exam Policy

Undergraduate applicants and students completing AP exams must submit official scores for all exams taken and send them to Holy Apostles College & Seminary for review.  Students earning a score of 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 AP credit placement on the student’s degree plan will be individualized based on the major the student pursues. AP credits count towards the total number of transferable credits allowed. If the number of AP credits combined with the credits transferred from other programs exceeds the maximum number of transferable credits allowed, Holy Apostles College & Seminary 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.  All AP Exam transfer credits are at the discretion and approval of the Academic Dean.
