Get recognition for college-level work completed prior to matriculation and pursue studies at the level appropriate to your preparation.

At Princeton, advanced placement can be earned through both outside exams and internal placement tests. The AP Credit Reference Table lists the credit and placement recommendations of academic departments which award advanced placement credit. The credit and placement policies described apply to Advanced Placement (AP), IB, A-level, and SAT subject scores. 

At the beginning of the fall of your first year, you will receive a report that outlines all units of advanced placement that you earned at the time of your matriculation (based on the test score reports you submitted over the summer). Review this report carefully and immediately inform your assistant dean for studies if it is inaccurate. In the middle of the term, you will receive a second report reflecting advanced placement that has been awarded during the intervening weeks via official standardized test score reports or results of Princeton departmental placement tests.

Consult the Class of 2028 Academic Guide for additional details. Your residential college assistant dean for studies can answer questions and provide further guidance.
