Credit for Test Scores

Students may use honor scores on Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, A-Level, and other exams to enter advanced courses. They may also petition to count honor scores as transfer credits towards the 32 units needed to graduate in order to graduate in six or seven semesters rather than eight, or to avoid falling behind when they receive permission to enroll in a reduced course load, when they must withdraw from a course, or when they fail a course. A maximum of 8 units transfer credit may be used towards the degree with exceptions made for transfer students at the time of the student’s application. Students may not count test credit towards general education requirements, including the Emily Balch Seminar, the Approaches to Inquiry, Quantitative, and Foreign Language requirements.
