*Students who choose to take a course equivalent to the AP exam noted on the Policy will forfeit the related AP credit.

·          A maximum of 5 advanced placement credits may be used to anticipate course work at Middlebury. AP credits applied toward graduation will be counted toward the 16-course limit in the department granting the credit unless the department specifically states that the credits do not count toward the major. AP credits do not fulfill distribution requirements. Students may count toward graduation no more than a total of five courses with non-standard grading.  The category of “non-standard grading” includes courses elected under the Pass/D/Fail option; AP, IB, A-Level, and other pre-college testing credits; and credit-bearing internships. Official AP Score reports must be reported to Middlebury College no later than the end of the student’s second semester.
