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

If you have questions, contact Undergraduate Admission by phone: 303-871-2036 or email: admission@du.edu.

Review Your Degree Audit

Review your Degree Audit in MyDU for a detailed evaluation of how your credits have been applied towards your degree requirements. AP and IB results are received in large batches starting in late July. It can take a couple of weeks to process these scores and award the appropriate transfer credit. Please be patient!

College Board sends official AP scores ordered by students, and DU awards credit based on our transfer credit policies. Students must take the exams to receive credit from DU. Request that your AP scores be sent to the University of Denver through the AP portal (school code is 4842).
