Regent Policy Documents

SECTION 4: ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROGRAMS

4-11 ADVANCED PLACEMENT

(Formerly 91-3)

The Board of Regents believes that it is important to encourage students at all educational levels to aspire to higher intellectual achievements. High school students can master college subject matter and document their intellectual achievements through the College Board Advanced Placement (AP) program. Scores of 3, 4, and 5 on the College Board Advanced Placement examinations will be accepted for degree credit by all University of Wisconsin System Institutions. Each Institution will determine whether course equivalent credit or credit in the major should be granted and the AP score required to grant credit for those purposes. University of Wisconsin System and University of Wisconsin System Institutions will publish this information in appropriate publications. This University of Wisconsin System policy will be in place no later than September 1992.

History: Res. 5746 adopted 4/11/91.
