I took AP courses, what do they satisfy? 

Please see the complete list of courses here: https://fresnostate.edu/studentaffairs/registrar/articulation/externalexamcredit/

*Please note that AP Statistics does not satisfy DS 73. You will still need to complete DS 73 when the time comes. 

I did concurrent enrollment in High School, how do I know what those courses satisfy?
