 Using AP/IB Scores for Language and Calculus Placement


AP and IB scores can be used to determine your language and/or calculus placement instead of the placement exams. If you recently completed AP/IB exams and are waiting for the test scores, you have two main options:

  1. You can wait until your AP/IB test score is available in July, and then use that score to determine your placement in language/calculus courses.  

    - In the meantime, register for your other classes.

  1. You can decide to take the language and/or calculus placement exam in early June, before registration opens, and use the placement score to determine which language/calculus class to take. This means that you will not use the AP/IB test scores for placement.  

    - The benefit of this option is that you can move ahead with registration more quickly, selecting your language/calculus classes at the same time as you are selecting other classes.

The Language Placement Exam costs $74.00. You can learn more about the exam here.

The Calculus Placement Exam does not have a cost. You can learn more about the exam here.


If you complete the Language and/or Calculus placement exams and find there is a discrepancy in your placement based on your AP/IB test scores, you can consult advisors.
