Advanced Placement

Drury University will grant credit for AP Examinations. Students must have an original copy of their score report sent directly to the Office of the Registrar.

Candidates interested in this credit are urged to take the Advanced Placement Tests given by the College Entrance Examination Board in the spring of the senior year. College credit, in addition to advanced placement, may be given if the text scores merit it as determined by the dean and the department chair concerned.

Important note to students who may attend medical school or other graduate study following completion of undergraduate degree:

Advanced Placement Credit, CLEP credit, and dual enrollment credit, although applicable to Drury undergraduate degree programs, may not be acceptable to meet entry requirements into certain graduate programs. As one example, St. Louis University Pre-medical Scholars program requires that all program requirements be completed on the Drury campus and therefore Advanced Placement, CLEP, and dual credit will not suffice for medical school entrance. Advanced Placement credits will be awarded to a student with adequate test scores, as per university policy. Each student, however, is responsible for determining if the credit will meet entrance requirements for the graduate or professional school of their choice, and for taking the required course work if their graduate or professional program will not accept Advanced Placement credits in lieu of course work.

Further information may be obtained by consulting the Advanced Placement booklet in the high school counseling office, or by contacting the Director of Admission.
