The University grants advanced placement, and placement with credit to beginning students who score three and above on tests in the Advanced Placement Program of the College Entrance Examination Board. Students interested in Advanced Placement should consult their guidance counselors and sit for the achievement tests in their senior year. A copy of the test results should be sent to South Carolina State University. As a guide for awarding AP credit the University accepts the American Council on Education recommendations. Departmental chairpersons make the decision to award placement with credit, or placement without credit. If placement only is given, an elective must be taken in lieu of each course used for placement.
