Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement in Mathematics

Any student who scores sufficiently well on the Advanced Placement Examination in Calculus (AB or BC) will receive credit for as much as two semesters of calculus. This will enable these students to start in either the second or third semester of calculus on their arrival at Valparaiso University.

The Department also offers a separate calculus placement examination which can be taken at the student's request. This can be done either during the summer or upon arrival in the fall. Students scoring well enough on this examination will receive four credits for first-semester calculus if they receive a grade of C or better in the second-semester calculus course.

Placement in Computer Science

Any student who scores sufficiently well on the Advanced Placement Examination in Computer Science (A or AB) will receive credit for as much as two semesters of computer science. This will enable these students to start in either the second or third semester of computer science on their arrival at Valparaiso University.
