Provost Office: Memorandum

To: All Faculty and Staff
From: Office of the Provost
Subject: Advanced Placement Credit - Effective Fall Term 2006
Date: 22 March 2006

Drexel recognizes the significance of superior scores earned by incoming freshmen on Advanced Placement (AP) examinations administered by the Educational Testing Service and rewards those students who do so. Consideration of AP performance may accelerate a student's progress in his/her respective degree program.

Incoming freshmen who have received a score of 5 on any AP examination may elect, with the approval of their academic advisor, (1) to be placed in an advanced course in that AP subject, (2) substitute another course or credit-bearing activity in its place, or (3) waive the course and apply the course credit to meet graduation requirements.

Students enrolled in a Drexel accelerated degree program - BS/MS, BS/PhD, or BS/MD, BA/JD - may, with the approval of their academic advisor, waive selected courses in which AP scores of 4 and 5 have been earned and apply the course credits to meet graduation requirements.
