Advanced Placement Program (APP)
Proficiency credit is awarded on the basis of sufficiently high
scores from 33 AP
exams and is subject to change upon annual review. The policies
below apply to all students entering Illinois in Summer 2009, Fall 2009,
or Spring 2010.
The University of Illinois recognizes the value of the Advanced
Placement (AP) Program and the International Baccalaureate (IB)
Programme. Students should be aware that there are times
when it is in their best interest to take the U of I course
that corresponds to the AP or IB credit instead of accepting the
test-based credit. You may be better prepared for the rigors of
the subsequent course in the sequence if you refuse this credit and take the course. Students are able to consult
with their academic advisors during Summer Registration in order
to determine what will be most appropriate for their individual
plan of study.
New undergraduate students who have not already earned college-level credit in
the subject are allowed to take a U of I departmental
proficiency exam in math,
biology, chemistry, physics, French, German, or Spanish if they wish to try to
proficiency out of an introductory course.
