AP/IB & Transfer Credits

The University of Denver grants credit for select Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) examination scores as well as previous credit earned through enrollment in college-level courses. Incoming students should submit their AP and IB scores and college transcripts prior to registration so that we can award credit and help place students in the correct courses.

Undergraduate Admissions will send you an initial credit evaluation, which will tell you what courses will automatically transfer for credit at DU.
