Advanced Placement (AP) is a program of The College Board through which a high school student completes college-level courses that are designated as AP in high schools. A student may earn college credits by demonstrating a specified level of performance on AP examinations. The AP exams, which are scored on a 5-point scale, can be taken by any student who feels prepared by independent study or other preparation as well as by students who complete AP courses. AP Score Reports are sent to the colleges or universities designated on your exam answer sheet. Students who do not designate MSUM on their answer sheet may contact AP Services (see below) to have scores sent to MSUM. The code for MSUM is 6678.
In accordance with MnSCU policy (3.15), a minimum score of three is required to receive credit for the Advanced Placement (AP) examinations. AP exams will be granted the same number of credits as the course they replace. If MSUM does not have an equivalent course, free elective credit may be awarded. Credit earned through AP is not residence credit and may not be used to satisfy residence-credit requirements for graduation. AP credit may be used toward Liberal Arts and Sciences Curriculum requirements.
