The College Board Advanced Placement (AP) examinations provide excellent preparation for undergraduate programmes at American College Dublin, Irish American University (ACD/IAU).

ACD/IAU wishes to acknowledge outstanding performance at high school level and seeks to foster continuing academic excellence following enrolment.

To this end, the College will recognize the value of prior learning through the AP examinations by granting 3 US general education (6 ECTS) credits for each AP examination passed with a score of 4 or higher.

Please note that the above will only apply to those who enrol on our four–year programmes.
