Advanced Standing Credit / Advanced Placement (AP) policy / Transfer Student Credit

Review the Advanced Standing/Placement policy

Quinnipiac grants credit for Advanced Placement (AP) courses completed in high school. To receive consideration for credit, applicants must take the AP exam and receive a minimum score dependent on the course.

Quinnipiac also gives credit for college courses completed as part of the high school curriculum. Applicants must request that an official college transcript be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions for evaluation. Courses completed with a grade of “C” or higher, which are part of our regular curriculum, will transfer.

If students have taken an IB curriculum, we will consider awarding advanced standing for higher level courses, based on a minimum exam grade of 4.
