Advanced Placement

Belmont University participates in the Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Board, and gives advanced placement and appropriate hours of university credit to qualified entering students. Advanced placement is awarded automatically through the Registrar's Office upon receipt of an official grade report sent directly from the College Board for the courses listed below to students who receive the scores indicated.

University credit is awarded in the amount carried by the course for which the student is receiving advanced placement. This credit is recorded as “P” and is not used in calculating overall grade point average.

A maximum total of 24 hours of credit may be earned through Advanced Placement, I.B., and / or CLEP combined. The AP tests accepted by Belmont University are listed as follows.
