Testing Offered through the Assessment Center

Advanced Placement (AP) Program

Southwestern awards college credit to students who have successfully met score requirements on AP tests. High school counselors assist high school students in making arrangements to take AP tests (not administered at Southwestern). The following table reflects available examinations for credit and the credit recommendation by Southwestern departments relative to scores received.

AP Grade Reports are sent in July to 1) the single college or university that you designated on your answer sheet, 2) you, and 3) your high school. Each report is cumulative and includes grades for all the AP Exams you have ever taken. Grade reports can be sent to additional colleges for a fee by calling (888) 308-0013.
