For students entering Barnard prior to fall 2016

Credit Limit: Maximum 30 credits

General education requirements: In addition to earning credit, AP/IB work may make a student exempt from a general education requirement (see chart below).

Class Placement & Exemptions: The AP/IB score can determine placement into Barnard class sequences and/or exemptions from course requirements.


For example:

-A student with AP credit for Art History cannot also receive credit for AHIS BC1001.

-A student with a score of 4 or 5 in a foreign language cannot receive credit for elementary or intermediate courses in that language.

-A student with AP credit for AP Calculus cannot receive credit for Calculus I.

(An exception: A student may receive credit for both AP Psychology and PSYC BC1001.)

Similarly, a student who entered before fall 2016 with AP credit for a science can use it for QR or toward lab science but not both.
