A-Level Equivalents

Assuming there is no duplication of coursework, a maximum of 24 credits may be awarded based on work completed while enrolled in high school through examinations such as AP/IB/A-Levels.

Credit through Examination

In order to receive credit for Advanced-Level (A-Level) examinations, students must have their final (not provisional), official exam results sent directly from the exam board or their secondary school to the GW Office of the Registrar as soon as they are available.

Be aware that credit earned by examination at other colleges or universities or examinations taken after having taken the appropriate college-level course does not transfer credit to GW.

Please refer to the following chart for GW’s course equivalents:
