This guide lists the credit and/or placement awarded for exam scores taken prior to Oberlin matriculation.
Incoming students may receive credit toward graduation for:
- successful completion of college-level coursework in secondary school, as measured by performance on the College Board Advanced Placement Program (AP) examination
- work completed in International Baccalaureate (IB) programs
- successful completion of approved liberal arts courses taken at a college while enrolled in high school; credits for such courses must appear on a transcript from an accredited college or university
AP and IB credit is granted on the assumption that the student does not enroll in an equivalent course at Oberlin; a student must relinquish credit if he/she enrolls in the equivalent course.
Oberlin accepts only higher-level scores for International Baccalaureate credit.
