Dear Mr. Asch,

Thank you for the informative link. It seems Penn still does offer credit for many AP courses. And, in line with your most recent post at, I am hard pressed to find a college or university that does not. In light of this information, I would agree that Dartmouth is "going out on a limb" with its new policy.

Thanks again,

Students at Penn can obtain individual credits for AP work, and they may use them to take a light term or even skip an entire semester if they have four credits. Here is Penn's list of departments offering various levels of credit for AP work.
