Advanced Placement, University in High School Courses, and International Baccalaureate Coursework

The College encourages the use of Advanced Placement exams and ordinarily grants credit toward graduation for those achieving a grade of three or higher. However, some departments require a score of four or better to grant credit. Each academic department has the discretion to determine the acceptable test score and credits awarded.

Students must request that an official score report be sent to The College of Saint Rose directly from the College Board in order to be granted credit. The college code for The College of Saint Rose is 2091. Students will be notified of the number of credit hours granted and course equivalencies.

High school seniors wishing to transfer in college-level credit and apply it toward their Saint Rose degree should have an official college transcript sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

The College of Saint Rose standard for granting credit toward graduation for International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme coursework (Higher Level only) is a minimum score of 5.
