Substitutions

Course Substitutions (Catalog Year 2013-2014)

AP/IB exams and college credits earned before you began attending Mason can be substituted for many of your Honors courses.

Be aware that most AP exams require a 4 or a 5 and IB exams require a 6 or a 7  to receive credit at Mason . See the Admissions web page for acceptable scores for AP/IB exams: http://admissions.gmu.edu/exams/

For Dual-Enrollment (previous college) courses taken before beginning your degree at George Mason University the course requirements below apply.  You must have received a B or higher for the course and it must be transferred to George Mason University and appear on your transcript before an official substitution can be made.  To substitute for HNRT 125 the dual-enrollment course must be equivalent to MATH 113 or MATH 108.  To substitute for HNRT 227 and 228 the dual-enrollment course must be equivalent to a two–course general education science sequence with labs.

Any credits that cannot be used for major, minor, or Honors curriculum requirements will count as electives towards the 120 credits required to graduate with an undergraduate degree from Mason.
