AP和高级Standing

Will my AP classes count?

In most cases, you will not earn actual credit—rather, these exams will fulfill corresponding requirements in the University Core Curriculum or your major or minor. Consult the list of accepted exams and scores.

What is Advanced Standing, and how do I apply for it?

Beginning with the Class of 2024, students who earned a total of 30 Advanced Placement units may be eligible for Advanced Standing and have the option to complete their undergraduate studies in three years. Students interested in this option should make an appointment with their Associate Dean after completing their first semester; no decisions on Advanced Standing will be made prior to that time. A decision to activate Advanced Standing should be made no later than the spring of Sophomore year. 

Students seeking Advanced Standing should be prepared to show their Associate Dean a detailed plan to complete all degree requirements by the proposed graduation date. Approval for Advanced Standing by their Associate Dean must be granted before the start of their third year of undergraduate study.

How do I drop or withdraw from a course?

Students can drop a course from the time they register until the published extended drop deadline each semester. After the extended drop period, undergraduates may withdraw from a course by the published deadline each semester. See the 校历 for extended drop and course withdrawal deadlines.

Students should complete a Course Withdrawal Form to be reviewed and approved by their Associate Dean. Students will not be permitted to drop or withdraw from courses after the published deadline. Students who are still registered at this point will receive a final grade for the semester.

What's the difference between course drop and course withdrawal?

A course drop permanently removes a registered course from your student record. A course withdrawal eliminates the option to receive credit or final grade for a registered course. The grading mode is listed as “W,” indicating that you were registered for the course and withdrew after the add/drop deadline.
