Advanced Placement

Spalding University awards advanced course placement with academic credit on the basis of the College Board Advance Placement examinations. Credit for scores on Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations may vary according to how the material covered by examinations fits the curriculum of the department. Credit received through the AP and IB exams may be applied toward degree requirements, University Studies, minor and major requirements.

Students who have completed AP and IB exams and earned a score high enough to receive credit must submit original copies of their test scores when they apply for admission. Spalding University awards credit based on the following AP Exam scores:
