AP Credit Policy

If you are a high school student and requested that the College Board send your scores to Governors State University when you took the tests, your scores will be evaluated in early August when GSU receives the score report. If your AP test score meets the requirements for course/elective credit, you will see the appropriate credit posted onto your student record in 8-12 weeks after scores are received by the Admissions Office. Scores of two (2) or one (1) will not be considered for course or elective credit. An AP exam score of three (3) may be considered for credit in some cases as listed on the official GSU AP chart. Scores of four (4) or five (5) will be considered for course or elective credit as listed on the official GSU AP chart. If you are a college student transferring to GSU and you took an AP exam in high school, check the AP chart to see if GSU will grant credit for your score. If you want this credit attached to your GSU transcript, contact the College Board. No credit can be posted until a student has enrolled at GSU and official AP scores have been received from the College Board.
