Advanced Placement

College credit is awarded to qualified students for specific advanced placement (AP) examinations offered through the College Entrance Examination Board. Specific score criteria are available in The Office of Advising and Educational Planning.

The AP examinations are administered in high school. The advanced placement (AP) credit is awarded after the student has successfully completed 12 credit hours at Saint Xavier University.

SXU also recognizes college acceleration program (CAP) credit as long as the student receives a grade of C or better.
