Advanced Standing/Placement

Freshman Advanced Standing

Advanced standing or placement will be considered for entering freshmen who have successfully completed college-level credit courses (with a grade of C or better on an official transcript) through a regionally accredited college or university, or who have achieved an acceptable score on an appropriate examination:

1. Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Board

2. International Baccalaureate

3. College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Transfer Student Credit 

An unofficial evaluation of credit is completed as part of the evaluation process for transfer students. Quinnipiac University normally grants transfer credit for college-level courses appropriate to the chosen curriculum completed with a grade of C or better at a regionally accredited college or university. Certain majors may request course completion within a five-year period. Official transfer of credit occurs once an admitted student matriculates into a program of study.

A student who has completed courses at an institution not granting degrees, or who has extensive experience in a specialized field, may request comprehensive examinations to help determine placement.
