Transfer AP or IB Credits

Washburn University knows that many individuals learn at a level comparable to what they would in college by taking advanced placement courses in high school. Therefore, Washburn awards college credit for advanced placement test scores, according to the table below.

To have credit awarded and posted to their transcripts, students must be either currently enrolled at Washburn University or former students of Washburn University. Test scores must be submitted directly from national testing companies in order to be considered for credit.

College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB): Advanced Placement Examinations

The Advanced Placement exams are prepared, scored and reported by the College Entrance Examination Board. Students should seek information and obtain registration materials through high school counselors or other secondary school officials.

The advanced placement program is designed for high school seniors planning to enter college and administered in conjunction with Advanced Placement courses taught in the high schools. The scores are reported to the University by CEEB. Appropriate credit or advanced placement is awarded at the time of enrollment at Washburn. When credit is awarded, it may be applied to meet degree requirements. When advanced placement is awarded, a student is advanced to a higher level college course without being required to take a lower level prerequisite. Depending on departmental policy and the examination scores a student earns, an academic department may award either credit, advanced placement, or both to a student. No entry is made on the college transcript for scores which are lower than those determined to be satisfactory by the academic department.

Students may have Advanced Placement test scores obtained in high school reported to Washburn for evaluation. Credit and/or advanced placement are awarded to students who have received a score of three (3), four (4), or five (5). Currently, a student maybe awarded college credit hours according to the following table:
