Advanced Placement Credit

The primary purpose of Advanced Placement (AP) credit is to exempt students from introductory courses and to place them in advanced courses. In the case of SHA students, credit may be awarded only in Free Electives, with two exceptions: microeconomics (score 4/5) and the First Year Writing Seminar (score 5). If you receive AP credit, you may not subsequently enroll in a similar course as outlined in the Courses of Study for credit at Cornell unless the AP credit is removed.
