Students who have taken part in the Advanced Placement Program during high school may request advanced credit. To receive credit, students must request that an official AP Report be sent to the Stonehill Registrar's Office, 320 Washington St. Easton, MA 02357. AP Report requests should be made to: AP Exams, P.O. Box 6671, Princeton, NJ 08541-6671.

As noted above, generally a score of 4 or higher is accepted for transfer as major or elective credit. In some cases, a score of 5 is required. Advanced Placement Credit cannot be applied toward the General Education Core Curriculum. In addition, students who are granted Stonehill College Credit for Advanced Placement Tests are not allowed to enroll in introductory courses in the same area(s) in which credit has been granted. All Advanced Placement Credits are approved by the Registrar's Office.
