Advanced Placement

There are a number of ways to earn advanced placement units at Boston College including qualifying scores on College Board Advanced Placement (AP) exams, International Baccalaureate exams, British A Level exams, French Baccalaureate exams, as well as results from the German Abitur, and the Swiss Maturité and Italian Maturità. Official results from all testing should be sent to the Office of Transfer Admission for evaluation. Students seeking Advanced Standing, which is the option to complete their undergraduate studies in six or seven semesters of full-time study, shall be in touch with their Academic Dean no sooner than the completion of their first semester at BC. Qualifying scores will be assigned advanced placement units as outlined in the tab below.
