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. If planning on majoring in art history, this credit 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.

2 Pending completion of an upper-level course.

 3Cannot earn credit for both AB and BC Calculus.

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.
