Advanced Placement

Incoming students who submit Advanced Placement (AP) test scores from the College Entrance Examination Board and who achieved satisfactory scores are considered for advanced placement or credit. College credit may be granted for scores of 4 or 5. In certain subjects, college credit is awarded for a score of 3.

For incoming freshmen, the results of these tests are received by the Registrar’s Office in mid-July. They are reviewed, along with the grades in the subjects, by the departments concerned and, when appropriate, placement and/or credit is granted. Credit is entered in the student’s record and can be viewed on WebXpress. Transfer students who took AP tests in the past should request their scores be sent to Stevenson from the College Board. More information can be found by visiting the Admissions website. For questions about AP credit, contact the Registrar’s Office.
