Entering AP Credits on the AMCAS Application. You do not need to enter course hours for AP coursework.
Entering a class and a lab. Note that Middlebury College does not grant separate credits for labs.
It’s also fine to combine the class and lab since they are just one credit.
This is a common mistake!!! Even though Middlebury College does not award credit for a lab, do not forget to list it!!
Here is sample course work taken abroad. Note that each course in this program was worth 0.8 credits.
Here is sample course work taken at an outside institution. Note that separate course and lab credits were awarded for General Chemistry.
List your First Year Seminar (FYSE) as an English (ENGL).
Bonus: What’s wrong with how CHEM 103 is listed?
You’ll be asked to enter your STATUS, YEAR and TERM. Status and Year are self–explanatory; see the Example 7 above. For courses taken at Middlebury, use the 4-1-4 term designation rather than the semester system calendar designation. 41 refers to the FALL semester, 4M is WINTER TERM, and 42 is SPRING semester. Bonus: What’s wrong with the top 3 entries in Example 3?
Most students will list their Statistics class under MATH because AMCAS states that applicants should, “classify strictly on the primary content of the course.”
This is a screenshot from an application that has been verified by AMCAS. You’ll note that AMCAS converts the Middlebury course + lab credit hours (1) to semester hours (4.00) as suggested by Middlebury: The suggested equivalent for one undergraduate course is 3.3 semester hours or 5 quarter hours. Courses with an associated lab noted on the transcript may be considered the equivalent of 4.0 semester hours.
