Up to 3 units of Kenyon credit may be awarded to students who have received scores of 4 or higher on CEEB Advanced Placement (AP) tests. See the links below for recommendations regarding credit and placement.
Kenyon will not accept transfer credit or test scores for which transfer credit will be granted more than one year after the completion of the coursework/testing (except in the case of a student admitted to Kenyon as a transfer student).
AP credit counts toward the 16 units required for the degree. However, no diversification requirement (i.e., four divisions) may be satisfied with AP credit.
AP credit may serve as a prerequisite for specific courses in the department, toward requirements for the major, and as advanced placement, depending on each department's decision. Students who enroll in courses for which the AP placement is equivalent will have the AP credit removed from their record by the Registrar.
Advanced placement, as opposed to credit, is determined by the department. AP credit may not be substituted for a semester of residence at the College. It may, however, be included in a proposal for early graduation.
