Advanced Placement Credit


The College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Program allows high school students to earn college credit and advanced placement through AP's college-level courses and examinations.



The College Board offers Advanced Placement examinations each May and evaluates students' proficiency based on a five-point scale. You may review a list of AP examinations and scores to learn more about the credit Ball State accepts and the scores necessary to earn credit. Information provided in this list is effective for students who have completed AP examinations on or after May 1, 2011. Students who have completed AP examinations prior to this date are subject to policies in place at the time in which they completed the examination. If you have questions regarding AP examinations or their Ball State course equivalency, please contact the Office of Admissions.


Participating high schools may administer their own AP examinations. Students who do not attend a high school that participates in the Advanced Placement Program may arrange to take an examination at any participating high school. For assistance in making test arrangements, contact your high school or write to: Program Director, College Board Advanced Placement Program, Box 977, Princeton, NJ 08540.
