Advanced Placement

Students who receive a score of 4 or higher on the English Literature A.P. Exam (not the English Language AP Exam) will receive one AP credit toward graduation upon the successful completion of an English first-year seminar or English literature course at Bowdoin with a grade of B or A. The Student Records Office administers this policy, and general credit is automatically granted when the above conditions are met. Advanced Placement credit in English literature does not count toward a major or minor in English.
