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. 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.

With qualifying scores, SHA students may be awarded AP credit only in Free Electives, with two exceptions: AP Microeconomics (score of 4/5 will fulfill HADM 1410) and AP English Language and Comp or AP English Literature and Comp (score of 5 will fulfill the First-Year Writing Seminar). Also note the following for AP Statistics taken by SHA Students:

  • SHA students who receive AP Stats credit (score of 4 or 5) will have it awarded toward free elective requirements only. They must still take HADM 2010, the SHA core Hospitality Quantitative Analysis course.
  • SHA students may not take stats classes listed on the forbidden overlap list (STSCI, PAM, etc).
