(Effective Fall Term 2006)
University recognizes the significance of superior scores
earned by incoming freshmen on Advanced Placement (AP)
examinations administered by the Educational Testing
Service. Consideration of AP performance may accelerate
a student's progress in his/her respective degree program.
freshmen who have received a score of 5 on any AP examination
may elect, with the approval of their academic advisor,
(1) to be placed in an advanced course in that AP subject,
(2) substitute another course or credit-bearing activity
in its place, or (3) waive the course and apply the
course credit to meet graduation requirements.
enrolled in a Drexel accelerated degree program - BS/MS,
BS/PhD, or BS/MD, BA/JD - may, with the approval of
their academic advisor, waive selected courses in which
AP scores of 4 and 5 have been earned and apply the
course credits to meet graduation requirements.
