Advanced Placement Exam

 

St. Ambrose University recognizes most of the subject examinations of the AP Examination Program of the College Board. Students who have participated in an Advanced Placement program while in high school may be eligible to receive credit based on performance in the AP exams.

St. Ambrose will not grant AP credit for coursework without the AP exam. Students should request the College Board to send their AP score to the SAU Office of the Registrar. Click for contact information.
