Effective for Undergraduates Matriculating 2014-15

A maximum of 45 quarter units of transfer and test credit may be applied toward the undergraduate degree. Subjects not listed on the AP chart are not eligible for AP credit. Students continuing in the subject should enroll in the placement course for the corresponding AP subject. If Stanford courses are taken below the level of the placement course, the corresponding AP units will be removed as these are considered duplicating courses. Scores of 4 or 5 on language AP exams fulfill the language requirement.
