Prematriculation credit is college credit that you may receive based on AP, IB, British A-Level scores, or college course work earned before your enrollment at Washington University as a first-year student, which can be applied toward a degree. A maximum of 15 units of prematriculation credit may be counted toward any undergraduate degree. These units will count toward graduation, but will not meet general curriculum requirements.
Prematriculation Course Credit
To receive credit for AP test scores, please call the College Board at 1-888-CALL-4-AP (College Code 6929) to submit your test scores to Washington University.
To receive credit for IB or British A-Level tests, please submit your test scores to: Freshman Coordinator, Washington University in St. Louis, One Brookings Drive, Campus Box 1117, Saint Louis, MO 63130-4899
The AP, IB, and A-Level policies are listed below, and can also be seen in the section titled Proficiency and Placement Examinations on the Admissions Procedures page of our Undergraduate Bulletin. No department at Washington University offers absolute credit for AP scores lower than 4 without further study. In French, German, Latin, Modern Hebrew, and Spanish, a score of 3 confirmed by a course here earns additional credit.
