AP Equivalents

If you have taken Advanced Placement (AP) exams in high school, we want to make sure you get credit, where applicable! Be sure to inform Admissions or the Advising Center if you having taken AP courses in high school.

You may receive college credit for most exams scored 3 or higher (English requires a score of 4 or higher). You can not earn credit for the same course twice. In cases where credit is awarded, the equivalent Iona course(s) will be added to the official Iona record, once the College Board transcript has been received and evaluated.

Please request that an official copy of all of your exam scores be send to Iona by the College Board. The College Board may mail all scores to:
