AP & IB Credit Evaluation

Students who wish to have International Baccalaureate (IB) or Advanced Placement (AP) test scores fulfill the First-Year Writing Requirements must have those test scores officially transferred to the University of Denver. Once the DU Registrar has received and processed those test scores, each student's academic progress report (APR) will be updated with the classes that those scores have fulfilled. Students should examine their APRs to verify that all credits or waivers have been awarded.
