Advanced Placement Credit

High school students may receive advanced collegiate standing by participating in the advanced placement program. Up to 40 semester credits may be earned through this program or by other test-out procedures. Hours earned through the advanced placement program do not count as hours in residence toward graduation with honors.

To earn credit though advanced placement, students must enroll in specific advanced placement courses offered by their respective high schools. Upon completing these courses, students take individual advanced placement examinations in each advanced placement course. Students may earn college credit for advanced placement scores of three, four, or five. Students should request that scores from these examinations be sent directly to Cedarville University by entering code number 1151 on their registration forms. Upon receiving these scores the college awards the appropriate amount and type of credit for each examination as determined by each academic department. No fees, other than the fees accompanying the examinations, must be paid in order to receive the college credit. In some cases, sophomore standing in particular subject areas may be earned through these examinations. Students should contact their local high schools to obtain advanced placement course and registration information.
