Institutional Research & Testing

Due to the evolving global epidemic associated with the coronavirus (COVID-19) and to protect the health and well-being of our students, faculty, staff and our communities, the testing lab at Ferris State University will be closed immediately through at least September 8, 2020. We are working under the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention together with state and local health departments.

Please continue to refer to for continued updates on this situation.

Ferris State University will be accepting May 2020 Advanced Placement (AP) Scores. A student must receive a score of a 3, 4 or 5 to get credit for the Ferris equivalent class. Test scores must be received directly from College Board.
