Does Yale award credit based on Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), or other external examination results?
Yale awards ‘acceleration credit’ to students for scores of 4 or 5 on most — but not all — of the AP exams; for scores of 6 or 7 on the Higher-level IB exams; and for A-level results of A or B. Acceleration credit may offer some students the option to graduate in fewer than eight terms. For further details see Yale College acceleration policies or the table of acceleration credit.
