Advanced Placement (AP) Credit Policies at Ontario Universities

(Last updated and verified May 20, 2018)

Advanced Placement (AP) exams are available to high school students in a variety of subject areas. These exams are typically at the difficulty level of first year university courses, and therefore Ontario universities often award university level credit for earning high scores on these exams.

Most schools have an AP credit policy that states both the maximum number of university credits a student may earn through AP testing (often 2 – 3, but sometimes more) as well as the minimum score required to earn a university credit (usually a 4 or a 5 out of 5).

AP exams are offered once per year in May only at AP-participating high schools. In the Greater Toronto Area, Bronte College in Mississauga has been very welcoming to homeschoolers wishing to write AP exams.

High School Transfer Credits

Queen’s University may grant Transfer Credits to students coming from a number of different programs. Transfer credit assessment varies depending on the courses or curriculum that the student has completed, the student’s scores/grades achieved in that program, the Queen’s program that the student is entering, and the student’s year of entry to Queen’s.

[Example, choosing Arts and Science as the Program: ]
Arts and Science Advanced Placement (AP) Transfer Credits

A maximum of 18.0 credit units may be granted for Advanced Placement examinations passed with a grade of 4 or higher.

Queen’s Undergraduate Admission will assess students’ Advanced Placement courses to determine whether or not Queen’s credits can be granted. (There are some courses that will not be given Queen’s credit, regardless of a student’s score on the exam.)

To have these courses assessed, students must arrange to have official examination results in the form of the College Board AP Grade Report sent to Undergraduate Admission, using Queen’s institution code “0949”. Queen’s will not request these reports on a student’s behalf.

Exclusion is defined as a list of two or more courses that are considered similar enough that credit will only be given for a defined subset of courses from that list. Usually, holding credit for an excluded course(s) will prevent registration of the remaining courses on the list.

More information about the degree plan selection process and departmental thresholds for acceptance can be found on the Faculty of Arts and Science website.

Advanced Placement (AP) transfer credit

Effective for students beginning their studies at Waterloo in September 2018


The University of Waterloo recognizes AP (Advanced Placement) examination results and will consider awarding transfer credits for AP courses in which normally a minimum final grade of 4 is attained.

Official final AP results must be sent from the College Board directly to the Admissions Office at Waterloo before  transfer credit can be considered. Your final AP results must be received by August 3rd.

You have the option to decline your transfer credits. Further details will be emailed to you in August, once your transfer credits have been assessed.

Faculty of Engineering, Software Engineering, and Architecture

  • The depth and level of problem-solving is very different in our Engineering programs than in the courses in the systems listed above.
  • As a result, Engineering programs do not grant first-year course exemptions for AP courses.
  • If you’re admitted to the School of Architecture, you’ll be considered for credit up to a maximum of 0.5 units (the equivalent of a one-term course) which can be used as an elective course.

Faculty of Environment

  • Transfer credits will be considered up to a maximum of 2.0 units, except for Honours Planning, for which transfer credits will be considered up to a maximum of 1.0 units.

Faculty of Mathematics, including Computing and Financial Management

  • Up to 1.5 units of transfer credit (the equivalent of 3 term courses at Waterloo) will be allowed for AP courses.
  • If you have completed AP Calculus (BC) with a grade of 5, you may
    • accept the transfer credit for AP Calculus and begin your calculus sequence with MATH 138; or
    • decline the transfer credit for AP Calculus and begin your calculus sequence with MATH 137; or
    • decline the transfer credit for AP Calculus and begin your calculus sequence with Advanced Calculus, MATH 147.The option to take MATH 147 is available only if your Euclid Mathematics Contest score is 80 or higher or if you obtain permission from the instructor of the MATH 147 course once you arrive on campus in September.
  • The Advanced Placement (AP) Transfer Credit Chart for Business Administration and Computer Science Double Degree and Business Administration and Mathematics Double Degree lists the specific Waterloo and Wilfrid Laurier University transfer credit equivalents for these programs.
  • Mathematics/Chartered Professional Accountancy does not award transfer credit for AP Microeconomics or AP Macroeconomics.
  • Faculty of Mathematics does not award transfer credit for AP Calculus AB, AP Computer Science, or AP Statistics.

Faculty of Science

  • Transfer credits will be considered up a maximum of 3.0 units.
  • Transfer credit of 0.5 units for MATH 127 will be allowed for AP Calculus (AB or BC) with a grade of 5.
  • Transfer credit of 0.5 units for STAT 202 will be allowed for AP Statistics with a grade of 4 or 5.
  • The Biotechnology/Chartered Professional Accountancy program does not award transfer credit for AP Microeconomics or AP Macroeconomics.

Course equivalencies

“1XX” means that you’ll receive first-year credit for an elective in that subject. For example, AFM 1XX means that you’ll receive a general credit for a first-year course in Accounting and Financial Management.
