AP, IB & Dual Credit

Dual credit

First-time freshmen may transfer accredited college coursework taken in high school, provided Monmouth offers a similar or equivalent course.

Credit will only be applied when an official college transcript has been received by the Office of the Registrar and the student has earned a grade of D or better in the course. Note that a grade of C- or better is required to receive transfer credit for any English composition or speech course completed through dual credit. No college credit will be awarded based on a high school transcript.

Students may transfer no more than 16 course credits (64 semester hours) to be applied toward the degree. Transferred courses will appear on the Monmouth transcript,

but grades earned in such courses are not calculated in the Monmouth grade point average.

Advanced Placement (AP) 

Monmouth awards credit for several AP courses with an exam score of a 3 or higher; in some cases a 4 or higher. All of these equivalencies transfer in a 1 course credit at Monmouth, except where indicated. Please note: Monmouth’s curriculum is based on a course credit system, where most students take the equivalent of 4 course credits per semester.

International Baccalaureate (IB) 

Scores of 4 or above on both IB Higher Level and IB Standard Level Examinations will be accepted for college-level credit. Completion of the IB Diploma with a score of 24 or above (with a minimum score of 4 in all SL and HL exams) will be awarded a full year of credit. A minimum point score of 24 is required to earn the IB diploma.

The specific course equivalencies awarded for each Higher Level or Standard exams are determined through evaluation by the appropriate academic department. If no course equivalency is determined, elective credit may be granted.
