Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program of the College Board enables students who have pursued college-level studies in high school to receive college credits based on their performance on the AP examinations.

Minimum score for credit: 3

Equivalencies: The Advanced Placement Guide is a list of AP Exam subject areas, the corresponding UDM courses (where they exist), and credits that are granted based on scores earned. Where a specific UDM course is not listed, AP scores generate elective credit. Depending upon a student’s program, the credits awarded from AP may or may not fulfill degree requirements.


International Baccalaureate

The International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization’s Diploma Program enables students who have pursued college level studies in high school to receive college credit based on their performance on IB examinations. Students are expected to take IB courses from a secondary educational institution accredited by the IB Organization. Students do not need to complete the IB Diploma to receive credit.

Minimum score for credit: 4 (unless otherwise noted) on any Higher Level (HL) IB examination.

Equivalencies: The International Baccalaureate (IB) Credit Guide is a list of the subject areas for IB exams with specific information about course equivalencies (where they exist), scores needed for credit, and the number of credits awarded. Where a specific UDM course is not listed, IB scores generate elective credit. Depending upon a student’s program, the credits awarded from IB may or may not fulfill degree requirements.

Maximum Credit Award through Examination – A maximum of 30 credits may be earned through a combination of IB, AP, CLEP or DANTES examinations. A student may receive either AP or IB credit for a course but not both.
