AP, IB, and other Pre-Wellesley Coursework in Psychology

Students who have received a 5 on the Psychology AP exam, or a 5, 6, or 7 on the Higher Level IB exam, are exempt from the PSYC 101 requirement, but may not count the unit toward the major. Students who have taken a college-level Introductory Psychology course prior to coming to Wellesley are exempt from the PSYC 101 requirement. If the credit for that course has been transferred to Wellesley and appears on the student’s college transcript, it may be counted toward the psychology major. AP credit for statistics does not exempt students from PSYC 205.
