Advanced Placement Examinations
Advanced Placement (AP) examinations in most subjects cover a full-year college course equivalent to eight semester hours of credit. Some subject areas (marked with an asterisk) are equivalent to one semester of college-level course work and are awarded credit based on the semester hours for the equivalent course at Westminster. A score of 3 is the minimum score accepted by the college; however, individual departments may require a minimum score of 4 or 5 to award credit for the equivalent course at Westminster. Students may receive a maximum of 40 hours of Advanced Placement credit.
