 IB/AP Policy

Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate (IB) Credit

Albright College participates in the Advanced Placement (AP) program of the College Entrance Examination Board. Examination scores of four or five will result in one course unit of credit toward graduation. Designation of course credit often satisfies a requirement of the general studies curriculum, thus allowing students to schedule an additional elective course. Results of the Advanced Placement exams should be sent to either the Admission Office or the Registrar's Office once the student has decided to enroll at Albright.

Eight course units of credit are available for holders of an International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma with superior performance (scores of five or higher) on at least three higher level exams. Individual course credit is available for scores of five or higher on single higher level IB course exams.
