A student who has completed advanced work in one or more subjects in high school may be granted college credit on the basis of College Entrance Examination Board Advanced Placement Examination Scores (AP). This certified achievement may be recognized in three ways: through the awarding of academic credit, satisfaction of specific Environmental Liberal Arts requirements, and equivalencies or placement in departmental major and minor programs of study.
Academic credit is awarded for scores of three or above earned under any of the programs and examinations of the Advanced Placement Program. Note that students may not repeat for additional credit college courses for which they have received Advanced Placement credit.
For advanced placement credits to be officially recognized and recorded by the College, it is necessary for the students to have the official Advanced Placement Score Report forwarded to Green Mountain College’s Registrar’s Office. Once this occurs, the credit will be awarded and the student will receive an evaluation notification from the Registrar. Any questions regarding this evaluation or other aspects of Advanced Placement examination and the awarding of Green Mountain College credit are to be addressed to the Registrar’s Office.
College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
College credit may be awarded to students scoring at appropriate levels on both the General Examination and on the Subject Matter Examinations. Contact the Registrar for specific information.
Students entering Green Mountain College will receive 6-8 credits (equivalent of two semester courses) for each higher level examination completed with a score of 4-7. Students who receive the full IB diploma may qualify for sophomore standing. Inquiries may be directed to the Registrar’s Office.
