WPI awards credit for AP scores of 4 or 5 only.  In order to receive AP credit, students must contact the College Board and request that their official test scores be sent to the Registrar’s Office electronically. Upon receipt/verification of appropriate AP scores, the below corresponding credit will be posted to the students’ records.  The student will be notified via email upon posting of the credit; the AP credit will be graded with an “L” on the transcript.

*Please note:  only 1/3 of AP credit (or IB credit) can be used toward the WPI Humanities and Arts requirement.
