College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) Advanced Placement (AP) Tests

Eastern Illinois University accepts scores of 3 or better in all AP exams.

*Did you report your scores to EIU before Fall 2016?  

We may be accepting more scores now in accordance with Public Act 099-0358. Students who have previously submitted scores for exams where EIU offered no credit, or where the required score was higher than a 3, may request a reevaluation of their AP scores by completing the form found here.  In accordance with EIU policy, students may receive credit only once in a given course and credit will not be granted if there is already an entry on the applicant’s permanent record for the course.

To confirm you will be allowed to earn credit with these scores please see the Credit for National Standardized Tests page.
