Advanced Standing Credit (AP,IB, GCE A-Level)

Degree Requirements & Academic Regulations



Advanced Standing: Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) & British A-Level Examinations

Advanced Standing credit includes Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and General Certificate of Education (GCE, Advanced-level exam) credit, and/or college credits completed prior to admission and matriculation to Pomona College or other college or university as a regular, degree-seeking undergraduate. Credit is awarded for scores of 4 or 5 on Advanced Placement (AP) exams; for scores of 6 or 7 on Higher-Level International Baccalaureate (IB) exams; and for comparable scores on GCE Advanced Level exams. Exams based on year-long courses receive one credit; exams based on semester-long courses receive one-half course credit. Credit is not granted for exams that duplicate each other, such as AP and IB English Literature.

A maximum of two Advanced Standing credits will be applied to the 32 credits needed for graduation. (Transfer credit from college course work completed as an admitted, degree-seeking undergraduate is not limited to the two credit Advanced Standing limit; see the section on Transfer Credit Policy ).
