Transfer and AP/IB Credit
AP and IB course credit
Credit earned through Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate tests usually allows students to fulfill liberal arts requirements, providing more flexibility in course selection.
Scores from Advanced Placement Examinations are received by the Blair office in August, not before.
Due to the late reporting of freshmen's most recent scores, students should register for courses as if no credit has been earned. Changes may be made once scores are received by the school.The Music Theory AP exam does not earn credit for B.Mus. students.
Students who have original documentation reflecting scores of 4 or 5 may submit this directly to the Blair Office of Academic Services:
