Advanced Standing Credit

You may be able to accelerate your academic program at Emmanuel College through advanced standing credit, including Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) and college credit from other institutions.

Advanced Placement (AP)
AP scores will be evaluated by academic departments, and typically offer college credit equivalent to one full Emmanuel course. If you receive credit for an AP examination, you will be placed at an advanced level in the appropriate academic department. Generally scores of 4 or 5 are accepted in exchange for credit at Emmanuel.

International Baccalaureate (IB)
Grades of four, five, six or seven on the IB higher level examinations entitle you to credit for at least one course. Each academic department at Emmanuel will determine the specific amount of credit to be awarded.

College Credit
The Office of Academic Advising assesses coursework taken at other institutions for eligibility for Emmanuel credit. In most cases, Emmanuel awards credit for courses for which you earn a grade of C (2.0) or better. While there is no limit to the number of courses that are accepted to transfer, a minimum of 16 courses or 64 credits must be completed at Emmanuel to earn an Emmanuel College degree.
