Advanced Placement & International Credentials

Advanced Placement (AP) and International Credential credit enables SHA students to exempt introductory courses and instead enroll in advanced courses. If you receive credit, you may not enroll in a similar course for credit at Cornell unless the AP or International Credential credit is waived. Please review the guidelines outlined in the Courses of Study.

SHA students with qualifying scores may be awarded AP credit only in free electives with two exceptions:

  • AP Microeconomics (a score of 4/5 will fulfill HADM 1410)
  • AP English Language and Composition or AP English Literature and Composition (a score of 5 will fulfill the First-Year Writing Seminar)

Please note that SHA students who receive AP Statistics credit (a score of 4 or 5) will receive credit toward free elective requirements only. All students must enroll in HADM 2010, the SHA core Hospitality Quantitative Analysis course.
