NOTE: Of the six humanities/social science electives that students must take to graduate from the Swanson School of Engineering, only two may be satisfied by AP and/or IB credit.

NOTE: The Swanson School of Engineering only accepts the HL IB scores noted above.  No SL scores will be accepted.

 

Foundational courses in the First-Year Engineering program are taken in sequence.  AP/IB credit may be used for foundational courses (e.g. Math).  If a student chooses to repeat a course at Pitt for which he/she has AP/IB credit, then AP/IB credit for subsequent courses in the same sequence is forfeited.
