for Advanced Placement (AP) applicants
AP students bring outstanding academic skills to Dalhousie classrooms and we want to recognize your hard work. For admission we consider your school results or final exams. You need to meet the same course requirements and admission averages as direct from high school applicants.
Dalhousie gives additional weight to AP courses when awarding entrance scholarships. Your application and all supporting documents must be received by March 15 for scholarship consideration. Visit Money Matters for more information about applying for our awards.
University credit for AP courses
Dalhousie awards university credit for selected AP courses completed with a national exam result of 4 or 5. Our AP Transfer Credit Table lists course equivalencies.
How does it work?
- After you are accepted to Dalhousie, we will let you know which AP courses transfer to your new program.
- One of our academic advisors will be in touch to explain your AP university credits and help you select your Dal classes.
- Don't forget to arrange for the College Board of North America to send an official transcript of your final AP exam results to the Registrar's Office.
