Advanced Placement Credit

Advanced Placement (AP) credit is college credit students earn before they matriculate at Boston University, and may be applied toward the degree requirements as specified by the individual programs, schools, and colleges of Boston University.

To be eligible to receive AP credit, first-time freshmen must submit AP exam scores before the first day of class of their first semester at BU. For transfer students, AP credit awarded by a prior institution will be reevaluated as part of the transfer credit evaluation process.

All students must submit official examination scores via the College Board. Please use BU’s College Entrance Examination Board code, 3087. Boston University reserves the right to change policy regarding AP credit without advance notice.

Complete details are available from BU Admissions’ Advanced Credit Guide.
