Advanced Course Placement

Each department decides how much advanced standing a student who has taken AP or done other substantial work in that field will receive. Advanced course placement advising will be done as part of the academic advising sessions in the academic departments and programs on Thursday morning, August 29. It is crucial that students attend these advising sessions to receive proper placement in courses.

If you feel that you might be eligible for advanced course placement in a particular department, you can also contact the chair of the department. If you have any questions for specific departments prior to your arrival on campus, we recommend that you contact the appropriate department chairs by email rather than try to call them, as most academic department offices are closed for the summer.

Some departments give examinations for placement or credit or both. All examinations are offered either over the summer or in the first month of the fall term and may be taken in the first year only.
