LMU participates in the Advanced Placement Program of the College Board. Students may be granted credit at the time of entrance into the University for subjects in which they have completed the AP examinations with a minimum score of 4. When official scores have been received from the College Board, applicants will be notified of the advanced placement and course credit in accordance with the following table.

No more than two Explorations courses may be met by AP exams. Since AP credits can be applied to the lower-division major, minor, and core courses, it is highly recommended that students discuss their options either with their associate deans or with their school/college academic coordinators.

AP courses do not fulfill flag requirements.

Please see the Registrar's Bulletin for more information.
