Advanced Placement Credit
Augustana Pre-Enrollment Earned Credit Policy for First-Year Students
First year students who earn college-level credit prior to the first term of enrollment at Augustana may declare up to one year of pre-enrollment credit. This can be up to 30 credits of combined AP, dual-enrollment credit, community college credit and/or IB work, with the following additional limitation: the IB + AP combined maximum limit is 18 credits.
First year students have until the end of their first-term of enrollment to declare their pre-enrollment credits. Once applied to the record these credits may not be changed.
Students who wish to transfer in more than 30 credits will be treated as transfer students for all financial assistance, scholarship considerations and academic policies.
Once declared, this is an irreversible decision. See the College Catalog for additional policies governing pre-enrollment credit.
Senate approved 4-12-12
First-year students who have taken the College Board Advanced Placement Examination may be eligible for as many as 18 credits. Students who wish to have their scores considered should request that the College Board send them directly to Augustana College. Scores of 4 or 5 may result in credit. Students earning more than 18 credits should complete the necessary form in the Office of the Registrar no later than the first term of enrollment to declare the courses, up to 18 credits, that they wish to have applied to their record. Academic departments determine which scores result in credit.
