Carnegie Mellon University

Advanced Placement (AP) & International Baccalaureate (IB) Credit

Carnegie Mellon may grant advanced placement and credit for scores of four and five on exams taken in the CEEB Advanced Placement program. When the test is taken, students should be sure to request that the results be sent to Carnegie Mellon. International students may submit IB Higher Level (HL) exam scores but may only receive credit for scores of six or seven. 

Incoming first-year students should contact the College Board by July 1 to request that AP scores from the current year and past years be sent to Carnegie Mellon. We will receive the scores by mid-July, which will meet our requirements. 

Note: In response to COVID-19, spring 2020 AP Exams were conducted online and IB examinations were suspended, to be replaced with either a diploma or a course certificate reflecting the student’s standard of work. Carnegie Mellon University will accept these spring 2020 results in lieu of traditional AP and IB examination results.
