AP and IB Scores

Students who enter the Honors College with credit from Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate exams may be able to receive credit for various coursework at the College of Charleston and the Honors College. It is important to recognize that requirements to receive credit for a College of Charleston general course are different from requirements to receive credit for Honors-level courses. Additionally, due to the structure of our curriculum, there may not be an Honors equivalent for every AP or IB exam. Please visit the Registrar's conversion chart to view the College of Charleston’s AP general credit requirements and the accompanying chart for the IB general credit requirements. For Honors equivalencies, please click see our own chart below or download it here

For students entering with Dual-Enrollment credit, we are happy to consider your courses on an ad-hoc basis during Honors Orientation.
