AP Test (Advanced Placement), CLEP, and IB (International Baccalaureate) Credit

AP (Advanced Placement), CLEP and IB (International Baccalaureate) Credit

Western recognizes that many students have challenged themselves in the Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) programs. 

Credit can be earned for AP exams, College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams, and the International Baccalaureate (IB) program.  Official score reports must be submitted for consideration from AP and CLEP.  An official transcript must be submitted for consideration for IB credit.

The following links provide specific equivalencies for individual tests.  A minimum score of 3 is required for credit to be granted for most Advanced Placement tests (some require a minimum of 4).  Western will grant International Baccalaureate credit for tests with a score of 4 or better.  Western will award a maximum of 18 credits for CLEP exams.
