Undergraduate Catalog 2021-2022

Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement exams are curriculum-based, and generally are taken after students complete the corresponding Advanced Placement course in high school. Advanced Placement courses are challenging, college-level courses that are designed to parallel typical lower level undergraduate courses. Exams are developed by committees of college and secondary faculty and are given to test groups of students in actual college courses to determine appropriate passing scores. More information about Advanced Placement, including descriptions of courses and sample examination questions, is available at http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/Controller.jpf. The CUNY Board of Trustees adopted a policy in 2017, that all undergraduate colleges and schools at the University shall grant course credit for advanced placement courses offered in secondary schools provided the student scores 3 or above on the advanced placement test.
