AP & IB transfer guidelines
We award up to 45 quarter credit hours for student success in AP and IB courses with qualifying test scores. If your students have achieved at a high level in secondary school and believe they can place out of some required college courses, refer to the Registrar's transfer guidelines.
We're always excited to host counselors from high schools around the country. Our staff and students provide detailed tours of campus and plenty of information on our academic programs and student life offerings. You'll also get a chance to see our student body at work. If you're a counselor whose students might be interested in becoming a part of the DU community, we encourage you to contact our Office of Admission and schedule a special visit.
Transfer visit preview day
If you're a counselor at a community college or other institution of higher learning, your students might be interested in visiting us on select Fridays during the spring and summer. Each session includes a student panel, an information session and a campus tour. Your students can also meet with academic representatives from our schools and colleges as well as transfer admission staff.
