Please be aware that AP credits are subject to change at any time and that this list is intended as a guide.  AP credit cannot be reviewed and issued until the student is enrolled as a University of Pittsburgh student.

 

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.
