  • Advanced Placement (AP) Program

    The Advanced Placement program is sponsored by The College Board and gives high school students the opportunity to demonstrate knowledge that merits college credit.

    L&C offers credit for many AP subjects. Scores from AP examinations should be submitted to the Enrollment Center, Baldwin Hall 1450.  Any student receiving a score of 3 or higher on a College Board Advanced Placement examination can apply the credit to meet a corresponding course requirement for degree completion at Lewis and Clark. 

    L&C will grant credit for eligible AP tests at $10 per credit hour.  L&C will accept AP credit for the courses listed below.  For more information, please contact your academic advisor.
