Transfer and Advanced Placement Credit Applicability in Purdue College of Agriculture Plans of Study

The College Board Advanced Placement (AP) Program allows you to establish college credit from tests taken at the completion of high school AP courses. See Purdue credit for AP Tests for a complete list of AP credit Purdue accepts and the scores necessary to earn credit.

AP test scores of 4 or 5 are often needed to earn credit for specific Purdue courses, whereas an AP exam score of 3 often results in undistributed credit, meaning Purdue does not have an equivalent course. Undistributed credit appears as the number 1XXXX or 2XXXX following the course subject.

For applicability of AP credits earned with a 3 on the AP test (which result in undistributed credit) to Purdue Agriculture plans of study, please refer to the table below.

See Other Information below the table for more information.

Example:

AP credits earned as Art History which are listed on a Purdue transcript as AD 1XXXX may be used for Humanities/Social Science Selective credit, unless there are earned Purdue credits in AD 22600 or AD 22700 (in which case, the AD 1XXXX credits are redundant and cannot be used toward graduation requirements).
