AP Credit: Summary
Students may receive credit for Advanced Placement exams they complete in High School. Policies governing AP credits vary from department to department. In some cases a score of 3 or better on the AP exam may be enough to receive credit. In other cases, a 4 or better is required on the exam. In still other cases students need to take an additional course or to meet with a department advisor in order to receive credit. As a result, it is essential that you discuss AP credits with your Academic Advisor at orientation.
If you have not had your AP scores sent to the U-M, go to the College Board AP Exam Grades web site: www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/ap/exgrd.html and click on "Grade Reporting Services," or call (888) 225-5427.
Your AP credit cannot count toward any LSA requirement other than the language requirement.
For a tentative list of AP credits, please refer to the University of Michigan Admissions web site.
