If a student has a strong background in a particular mathematics course, then he/she may achieve advanced placement in one of three ways:

- An appropriate score on an Advanced Placement Examination.
- Credit by examination.
- Waiver of the course. Students given permission to waive course are required to replace it with an upper-level (300 or 400) mathematics course

## Advanced Placement Examinations

The department gives college credit for Calculus based upon the following scores on the A.P. Calculus Examination:

## AP Calculus Score Placement

AP Course | Score | TCNJ Equivalent | Number of Course Units Received as Credit | Next Math Course to Take |

AB Calculus | 4 or higher | MAT 127: Calculus A or MAT 125: Business Calculus | 1 | MAT 128: Calculus B |

BC Calculus | 3 | MAT 127: Calculus A or MAT 125: Business Calculus | 1 | MAT 128: Calculus B |

BC Calculus | 4 | MAT 127: Calculus A and MAT 128: Calculus B | 2 | MAT 229: Multivariable Calculus |

Statistics | 3 | STA 115 Statistics (Liberal Learning/Quantitative Reasoning) | 1 | Discuss with an adviser |

Statistics | 4 | STA 215 Statistical Inference (Liberal Learning/Quantitative Reasoning) | 1 | Any 300-level course |
