Other Ways to Prepare for Your First Semester

External Credit

For Advanced Placement (AP) exams, submit a request through the College Board for your scores to be sent to us. You’ll be able to talk about your exams during your registration appointment. Details for transfer equivalencies for AP examinations are available through the academic catalog.

International Baccalaureate students should submit a request through the IB portal to send your scores directly to us. Details for transfer equivalencies for IB Examinations are available through the academic catalog.

Students who took college classes while in high school must submit an official transcript from the college or university when their semester is completed. Credit noted on your high school transcript is not sufficient.

Contact registrar@westminstercollege.edu if you have questions about external credit.
