Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement

Kent State University awards college credit for Advanced Placement (AP) exams with scores of 3, 4, or 5. The AP Chart gives information about these scores and credits earned. Specific questions regarding how these credits apply to your selected major must be directed to that college office. If the credit appears on your transcript from a previous Ohio school, you may not need to provide any additional information. If your previous school does not include your AP credit on your transcript or if your AP credit appears on an out of state transcript, you should have original copies of your scores forwarded to Kent State. KSU's code is 1367 for AP credit. Review additional AP credit information at the Ohio Board of Regents website. If you are a high school student and you asked the College Board to send your scores to Kent State University when you took the tests in May, your scores will be evaluated in early August when Kent receives the score report.

You will receive an E-mail to your address when your credit has been posted.

If you did not ask the College Board to send your scores to Kent, you will need to contact the College Board directly. You can obtain reports by:
