The College of Engineering routinely offers credit for appropriately high scores on Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate Higher Level (IB), and General Certificate of Education (A-level) examinations. For detailed information on the acceptable scores, please refer to the Advanced Placement and Transfer Credit website. The website shows what scores are needed in order to be eligible to receive credit for different Cornell courses.
Once admitted, Cornell students can also earn credit by taking a Cornell Advanced Standing Exam (CASE) during their fall orientation period. While these exams are voluntary, they help place students in the appropriate coursework level. Additional information on this topic is available in the Cornell Engineering Handbook. Please also note that the Cornell University Courses of Study (section: General Information: Enrollment, Credits, and Requirements) is the definitive authority on transferring credit to Cornell University and the College of Engineering.
