Academic Policies and Procedures » Advanced Placement
The Advanced Placement (AP) program is administered by The College Board. The program consists of a series of college-level courses taught in selected high schools throughout the country. All are full-year courses, which culminate in the administration of a nationwide Advanced Placement Examination. Quality and standards are established by college faculty who serve as consultants in each program. The State University of New York's policy requires that a student achieving a score of 3, 4 or 5 on any Advanced Placement Test receive credit at its institutions.
If a student desires to take a course for which AP credit has been granted, he/she may do so but will lose the AP credit that might have been given.
See the College's AP Course Equivalencies (https://www3.newpaltz.edu/transferequivalencies/list/10000) for Advanced Placement subjects that have been assigned equivalency at New Paltz. Any course not listed will be evaluated for the appropriate transfer equivalent.
