Advanced Placement or Credit by Exam

School of Hospitality Administration Policy

Students entering the School of Hospitality Administration who offer satisfactory scores in Advanced Placement Examinations may receive credit for foundational and elective requirements. If you have taken the Advanced Placement Examination, the official College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) score reports should be submitted to BU Admissions in order to determine eligibility for advanced credit (code is 3087). If you have been awarded Advanced Placement credit, be sure to confirm with the SHA Director of Student Services that the credit is posted to your transcript. This will eliminate the possibility of a course appearing to be missing from your record.

The programs at Boston University award credit for test scores of 4 or 5 on most AP Examinations. For more information, please consult the Advanced Credit Guide.

Most programs at Boston University award eight credits for test scores of 5, 6, or 7 on most higher-level International Baccalaureate Examinations. For more information, please consult the International Baccalaureate course equivalence guide.
