We’re pleased to announce that all public colleges and universities in the state of Indiana, US, will now award college credit to students earning a score of E or higher on Cambridge International AS & A Level examinations. This gives Cambridge International AS & A Level courses the same grade weighting as other advanced courses offered to high school students in the US.
College credit recognises that students are already ahead in their undergraduate programme before they begin their university studies. It enables students to reduce the length and cost of their degree programme.
"Working with Cambridge International ensures that our schools are preparing future leaders for success in their college, careers, and communities," said Representative Robert Behning, Indiana's House Education Chairman. "The recent decision to give credit for Cambridge International AS & A Level examinations will encourage more students from both domestic and international schools to apply to Indiana colleges and universities and enable students to continue to strengthen communities here in our state."
Indiana is now one of the increasing number of states where all public institutions grant credit for Cambridge International AS & A Levels, including Florida, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Washington, and Virginia. Indiana's public institutions have joined more than 850 US colleges and universities, including Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Duke University, New York University, University of Washington, and University of Virginia who now accept Cambridge exams for credit and/or placement.
From 2012-17, 265 US Cambridge students enrolled at a public or private college or university in the state of Indiana. Fifty-eight percent of those students enrolled at an Indiana public two- or four-year college or university, with 42 percent enrolling at a private college or university. In addition, 12 private colleges and universities across the state of Indiana recognise Cambridge International AS and A Levels. With this new policy, these student numbers are sure to increase.
"This recent decision provides well-prepared Indiana high school students with an incentive to stay in-state for college because they can now save time and money for their hard work in high school. This decision also allows out-of-state students to realise the same benefits when attending college in Indiana," said Mark Cavone, Cambridge International Regional Director, North America. "The Cambridge programme provides academically rigorous curricula emphasising critical thinking and produces well-rounded students that are prepared to excel at Indiana public institutions."
