Credit for AP and IB Exams

Pratt Institute accepts credit for Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB) Higher Level, and College Level Equivalency Program (CLEP) exams with acceptable scores. Exams must be taken prior to matriculation at Pratt. Official copies of score reports must be sent to Pratt so that a complete credit evaluation may be done at acceptance. Students must notify the school of all tests prior to their first semester in order to be considered for transfer credit.
