1 Credit is only awarded for a score of 5, and this credit award is contingent upon a PORTFOLIO REVIEW by the Art Department at Wheaton in August.
2 A score of 4 earns students general art history credit and will not count towards the major. If you plan to major in art history, a score of 5 will count as one of the two 100-level courses required for the major. Meet with the department chair for more information and the appropriate next art history course.
3 May count toward the major. If you wish to continue in biology, determine if your emphasis in the AP class was on Evolution & Ecology or Cells & Genes. Plan to enroll in the less represented area: BIO 111: Evolution & Ecology or BIO 112: Cells & Genes. Consult with the department for further advice.
4 If you intend to continue studies in mathematics, or pursue a major requiring Calculus II (Biochemistry, Chemistry, Physics), consider registration in Math 104 Calculus II or consult with the Mathematics Department during orientation.Please note that Wheaton awards one credit for AP Calc AB or for AP Calc BC; it is not possible to earn two credits for acceptable scores on both tests.
5 If you intend to continue studies in mathematics, consider registration in MATH 221: Linear Algebra or consult with the Mathematics Department during orientation. Please note that Wheaton awards one credit for AP Calc AB or for AP Calc BC; it is not possible to earn two credits for acceptable scores on both tests, nor is additional credit awarded for the AP Calc AB Subscore, alone, if credit is earned for AP Calc BC.
6 If you intend to continue studies in chemistry, you may begin with either Chem 153 (fall) or Chem 253 (spring). Please meet with the Chemistry Department Chair for assistance in choosing the appropriate course.
7 For students who wish to take this language to complete their two-course foreign language (FL) curricular substitution, successful completion of an additional course is required. Consult with the department about an appropriate-level class. Students wishing to complete the two-course FL requirement in another language will receive general AP credit in the language.
8 If you intend to continue studies in Computer Science, consult with the Computer Science Department about appropriate placement.
9 If you plan on pursuing environmental science, consult with the program coordinator concerning application of this credit to the major. The credit may be applied as a “related course” for the major in biology.
10 If planning on majoring in history, this credit will not count towards the major.
11 Academic credit and Foreign Language (FL) curriculum substitution will be awarded, contingent upon your completion of an upper-level course in the language. Speak with the Chair of the Department about an appropriate-level class.
12 May count toward the anthropology or sociology major.
13 Consult with the Music Department regarding application of this credit to the major. The department does not give credit for subscores. These are used for placement purposes only.
For provisional (pending) awards, the credit is not posted until the conditions have been met. If credit is dependent upon the outcome of a portfolio review, the appropriate department chair should be contacted after the first week of the semester.
If the completion of an upper-level course is required—typical for foreign language credit—the student's record will be evaluated at the end of each semester until the condition is met. Please consult with the appropriate department to determine which courses fulfill the upper-level course requirement.
