REMARKS: Students are eligible to receive a maximum of eighteen (18.0) transfer credit units for Advanced Placement exams with a score of 4 or greater. Advanced Placement credits can be applied as Arts and Science credit units towards the B. Comm. degree.  

1)  Calculus AB is equivalent to MATH 123*, which is the first-half of our full-year, 6.0 credit unit Calculus course - MATH 121. Calculus BC is equivalent to both halves of MATH 121 and so the higher credit-value course has been awarded.

2)  AP Economics (ECON 110), can be used to replace the required first year credit units in Economics. However, the student can maintain a 33.0 credit unit load by enrolling in an additional 6.0 credit units in Arts and Science electives.

3)  AP Statistics can be used to replace the required first year credit units in statistics (COMM 162). However, the student shall maintain a 33 credit unit load by enrolling in another 3.0 credit units.
