Freshman Advanced Placement Credit

You can earn Advanced Placement (AP) credit for courses if you achieve the required scores on the Advanced Placement Examination of the College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB).

When you take the examination, you should direct the CEEB to send the test score report to the Office of University Admissions at Adelphi University. You may receive a maximum of 30 credits from AP tests and/or college-level work completed prior to high school graduation.

You may also receive AP credit by earning an acceptable grade on other selected tests, such as:


You may not receive additional credit from Adelphi for those courses for which you have AP credit. If you have taken an AP exam but have not received your scores you can call 888.308.0013 and with a valid credit card you can find out your score.

Please note that acceptance into the Honors College may affect how credits are granted for Advanced Placement. You need to discuss this with the Dean of the Honors College or an admissions counselor.

Some students enter the University with college-level credits for course work taken while in high school (or in the summer after high-school). If you have earned credits you must have an official transcript sent to the Office of Admissions at Adelphi. Make sure you don’t sign up for the same classes once you matriculate here.

The following chart lists the required scores, the Adelphi course equivalents, and the number of credits you will receive for Advanced Placement:
