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.

English Language/Composition — 3 credits

Only English Language/Composition is accepted for credit. English Literature/Composition is not recognized for credit.

Art History* — 3 credits

*Note: A student achieving an AP score of 3 in Art History will have the option to be interviewed by the chair of the department to determine sufficient mastery of course material. The chair will then determine whether the student may be assigned to a higher-level course. In no case will the process result in a waiver of credit requirements but only in the substitution of another course.
