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.
