Advanced Placement Program

The Advanced Placement program, administered by the College Board, provides an opportunity for students to complete college-level course work at secondary schools. Prospective students who complete the AP examinations, and achieve an appropriate score, are eligible to earn college credit.  The JMU credit equivalencies are reviewed annually by academic departments. 

JMU will accept these scores electronically from the testing agency.  Please contact the agency to request that scores be sent directly to JMU.  Student score report copies will not be accepted. 

For more information and the most recent scores, refer to the Undergraduate Catalog web site.

International Baccalaureate Program

JMU recognizes the International Baccalaureate diploma and individual IB courses by awarding credit on IB higher-level examinations in essentially the same manner in which credit is allowed for Advanced Placement courses. Some standard-level examinations will also be considered for credit.  The JMU credit hour equivalencies are reviewed annually by academic departments. 

JMU will accept these scores electronically from the testing agency.  Please contact the agency to request that scores be sent directly to JMU.  Student score report copies will not be accepted.
