PURCHASE COLLEGE CATALOG 2016–18
Draft in progress
A score of 4 or higher on either the Advanced Placement Literature and Composition exam or the Advanced Placement Language and Composition exam satisfies the Basic Communication requirement. Students who have received a score of 3 on either of these exams will receive 6 liberal arts elective credits for their score, but will still be required to enroll in College Writing. College Writing is generally required in the first semester of the freshman year.
