Advanced Placement Credit Table

Many students have taken CollegeBoard Advanced Placement Exams, International Baccalaureate, GCE A-Level, French Baccalaureate, or Cambridge Pre-University Principal Subject courses in high school and have completed corresponding exams that may award college level credit.

The AP credit tables summarize exam credit and placement that are specific to Cornell Engineering. If the course/exam is not listed on the table, then no advanced placement credit will be awarded. For more information about advanced placement credit and a comprehensive list of Advanced Placement sources and credit awarded by the University, please refer to online Courses of Study.
