Advanced Placement Program

Many high schools offer advanced classes to highly motivated students in conjunction with the Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Board. Fayetteville State University awards college credit in most areas for scores of"3" (good), "4" (honors), or "5" (high honors). Students who have taken advanced placement courses in high school and performed satisfactorily on AP Examinations may be granted college credit by examination. To be eligible for credit, students must request the College Board to send an official score report to the Office of Admissions for review.

The following are the course credit guidelines for Advanced Placement Examinations:
