Advanced Placement and Departmental Credit
Advanced placement in courses may be obtained through the Advanced Placement exams administered by the College Entrance Examination Board or by taking approved departmental exams. Credit for advanced placement courses may not exceed 45 (sophomore standing).
Advanced Placement Exams
College level Advanced Placement (AP) exams are administered through the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) for AP courses taken while in high school. College credit can be granted if the test scores earned meet Seattle University requirements.
For a list of required AP scores for students entering SU, see the Advanced Placement policy on the Registrar's web site. Prospective students, may use this policy for reference, however the policy may change for students entering in the future.
In order to grant AP credit, official examination results must be sent from the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) to the Office of the Registrar:
Office of the Registrar
Attn: Andrew Anderson
901 12th Ave
PO BOX 222000
Seattle WA 98122-1090
Departmental exams are administered by individual Seattle University departments and are available for English Composition, Modern Languages (see dept.), and Math (Math 134 and 135).
For departmental exams in composition, modern languages, or mathematics consult the individual department. The department will notify the Office of the Registrar if courses are to be waived or credit is to be granted.
To verify whether you have received credit for departmental exams, view your Program Evaluation on SU Online. AP exam credits are awarded during Summer quarter for students entering in Fall quarter who have submitted their test scores. E-mail confirmation is sent at the end of the summer announcing AP credit placement.
