*Students may receive credit for Calculus AB or BC, but not both.
 
†Students may not receive more than 2 units of credit for the introductory sequence.  For example, a student who enrolls in both PHYS 107 and 108 will not also receive AP or IB credit.
 
**MATH 101 is not deemed an equivalent course to PSYC 205, so a student may retain credit for AP in Statistics if she takes PSYC 205.
