Advanced Placement (AP)

There is no change for how AP credits are awarded for students entering in Fall 2020.

However, since some of the 2020 Advanced Placement exams will not include all of the units typically covered on those exams, students who earn scores of 4 and 5 on some exams in the 2020 test administration may need to consult with faculty and professional advisors to determine if they have the prerequisite knowledge and background to be successful in more advanced coursework in the fall semester. Once AP scores are received in July, advisors will reach out to students as appropriate with more information and guidance.


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.

Students will need to provide an original copy of the scores directly from the College Board in order for credit to be granted. Our CEEB code is 002765.

Students should have the scores sent electronically or 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


The following is a list of advanced placement exams and scores, and the Rutgers degree credit that is awarded based on those scores.
