Advanced Placement (AP)

Degree credit is awarded for advanced placement examination scores of 4 and 5 on the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations. Credit is not given for grades of 3, 2, or 1.

Some students may find that these high school-level courses do not provide the same foundational knowledge that is available through an introductory-level university course.  Students may, after consultation with an advisor, decide to waive the credits from the AP course to enable them to register for the introductory course in a particular academic discipline. This waiver must be requested in writing prior to registering for the introductory course and may not be reversed.  If the student accepts the credits and subsequently enrolls in the course, the AP credit equivalent is deleted from the Rutgers transcript.

Students will need to provide an original copy of the scores directly from the Educational Testing Service (ETS) in order for credit to be granted. Rutgers' CEEB code is 002765. ETS can send the scores electronically or students can mail the report to the following address:

SAS Office of Advising and Academic Services
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey
54 Joyce Kilmer Avenue
Lucy Stone Hall, Room A-216
Piscataway, NJ 08854
