Coles College Policy for Assigning Course Credit based on Advanced Placement (AP) and College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) Test Scores

AP Tests: Kennesaw State University awards credit for select courses based on Advanced Placement (AP) Test scores of 3 or higher.

To be admitted to the Coles College Undergraduate Professional Program, a student must have a minimum GPA of 3.00 for the Sophomore GPA Requirement courses. In the calculation of this GPA, applicable AP test scores of 3 = C, while scores of 4 or 5 = B.

A “K” grade is assigned for these courses on the student’s transcript. These courses are not included in the calculation of the KSU GPA.
