REMARKS: Students are eligible to receive a maximum of eighteen (18) transfer credit units for Advanced Placement exams with a score of 4 or greater.

Notes: 
1)  Calculus AB is equivalent to MATH 123*, which is the first-half of our full-year, full-credit Calculus course - MATH 121. Calculus BC is equivalent to both halves of 121 and so the higher credit-value course has been awarded.
2)  Please note that a grade of 5 in AP Psychology is required for access to the Major program in Psychology. A grade of 4 is required for access to the Medial program and Minor program in Psychology.  Students considering the Major or Medial program in Psychology will be allowed access to upper-year core courses in Psychology in their first year of study, providing there is sufficient space available.
3)  All students wishing to pursue a concentration in History must take 6 100-level History credit units in addition to the transfer credit given.
4)  All students wishing to pursue a concentration in Political Studies must take POLS 110 in addition to the transfer credit given.
