Students who have taken AP courses administered by CollegeBoard in high school and have taken an AP examination may receive university credit. Visit the College Board site for AP Exam Dates.

Request for re-evaluation of a specific equivalency listed in the chart will not be considered. Decisions of the department are considered final. Generic credit for the AP Capstone may be re-evaluated by the teaching department in which the Capstone most closely aligns for consideration of a direct equivalency or department elective of lower-division credit. Please see the link below for the equivalencies.

Note: No credit is given for an exam with a score of one or two.

SENDING SCORES TO CSU:
