AP and IB Credit

Challenging yourself academically through Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) courses while in high school is an excellent way to begin to prepare yourself for the rigor of college work. UConn does provide transfer credit opportunities for AP and IB coursework, providing a certain score is achieved on the exam.

College Board AP Examination Transfer Guidelines — 2016-2017 Academic Year

AP examination scores must be sent directly from the College Board to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Please refer to the College Board website for information on score reporting services.
