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.

Advanced Placement Credit Policy
Pratt Institute accepts up to a maximum of nine (9) total AP credits (up to 3 credits in each of the categories) with a score* of four (4) or five (5) only in the following:
English Language/Composition — 3 credits
Only English Language/Composition is accepted for credit. English Literature/Composition is not recognized for credit.
Math or Science — 3 credits
The Math & Science Department will only recognize one exam for credit. If you qualify for a different credit than you were awarded and would like to switch, please email your request from your Pratt email account to the Registrar's Office.
Art History* — 3 credits
*Note: A student achieving an AP score of 3 in the History of Art and/or Design 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.
