AICE

Policy

Stetson University recognizes the achievement of students who have successfully completed rigorous pre-college courses through the Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) Diploma program. Students earning an AICE Diploma with "Distinction" will be granted sophomore status and guaranteed 7 course units or 28 academic credits determined on the basis of their examination scores.Students earning the AICE Diploma with "Merit" may earn course units for both Advanced Subsidiary (AS) Level and Advanced (A) Level examinations with an AICE score of C or higher. See our Registrar's page for specific credit allocations. In general, a score of C on an Advanced Level exam earns 1 unit (4 credits); scores of B or A earn 2 units (8 credits) in some disciplines; and a score of C or higher on an Advanced Subsidiary Level exam earns 1 unit (4 credits). Students who take AS and A Level exams in the same subject area may only receive credit for a single exam.

Students who have not earned the AICE Diploma at the level of "Merit" or "Distinction" may earn course units for scores of C and above on individual Advanced Level examinations. See our Registrar's page for specific credit allocations. Scores on individual Advanced Subsidiary Level examinations, absent the AICE awarding of "Merit" or "Distinction," are not eligible for credit, but are valuable to faculty advisors in determining appropriate placement in Stetson courses.Stetson welcomes students who have taken the "Global Perspectives and Research Report" (GPR) curriculum from Cambridge. The independence of thought, critical thinking, and research and inquiry skills that are developed in the GPR curriculum are highly valued components of a Stetson education. Credit will be awarded on an individual basis for the AICE score on the GPR report.

Stetson allows a maximum of 8 units (32 credits) to be awarded on the basis of approved precollege examinations. Credit is not awarded in the same subject for two examinations (such as AP and AICE).

This policy is in effect as of the fall 2012 semester.
