Advanced Placement Credit

College of Engineering Policy


College of Engineering students may receive Advanced Placement credit by earning a qualifying score on the appropriate Advanced Placement examination administered by the College Board. Official CEEB score reports must be submitted to the Admissions office at Boston University in order to determine eligibility for Advanced Placement credit.

Note that if a student chooses to enroll in the same or equivalent course for which AP credit has been awarded, duplicate credits cannot be applied to the degree. A Boston University course takes precedence over AP credit.

International Baccalaureate Examinations

Students in the College of Engineering may receive International Baccalaureate credit by attaining a qualifying score on the appropriate International Baccalaureate subject-matter examination. Course credit is determined by the International Admissions office, 881 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215.
