Advanced Placement Exams

Students entering Georgia Tech may receive college credit based upon their scores on the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Exams taken in conjunction with designated high school advanced placement classes, SAT II Subject Tests, The International Baccalaureate, and/or Georgia Tech Departmental Exams.

Once enrolled at Georgia Tech, students are not allowed to take College Board (Advanced Placement and SAT II), International Baccalaureate, or A-Level Examinations for credit. All examinations must be completed prior to the student's enrollment date. Students who offer satisfactory evidence that they are qualified to do so may receive credit for a course by examination at Georgia Tech. Such an examination is called an Examination for Advanced Standing.

**Please be aware that BIOL 1510 credit will be awarded as BIOS 1107 and BIOS 1107L effective Spring 2020.
**Please be aware foreign language credit is only awarded with a score of 3 for First Year students starting 2020-2021.
