AP Credit Evaluation

The College Board has announced modifications to the AP examinations offered for the 2019-20 academic year only: examinations in the spring of 2020 will be administered as 45-minute online free-response exams to be taken at home, in lieu of the traditional face-to-face format. The University of Nebraska – Lincoln remains committed to granting students academic credit for the AP examinations they have successfully completed, and will continue to accept subject area scores as listed on the table below.

Subject areas accepted and scores required are subject to change. No credit is awarded for the AP Capstone courses.
