Advanced Placement (AP)

Roberts Wesleyan College recognizes work beyond standard high school achievement by granting either credit or a waiver of course requirements for Advanced Placement program work. 

Credit is awarded for scores of 3 or higher on an Advanced Placement examination.  Credits cannot be posted to the student's academic record unless an official copy from the College Exam Board is received by the Registration Office. Transcripts issued to students will not be accepted or considered official.

After an official copy of the exam score has been received, credit will be awarded and placed on the student's transcript. Transcripts can be viewed by currently enrolled students on IQweb (rwc.roberts.edu).  The transfer credit(s) may not appear on the student transcript immediately, as the scores must be evaluated.  Courses will be noted on the student's RWC transcript as the course equivalent and will have a grade of 'TR.'
