Students enrolled at the University of Utah who received scores of 3, 4, or 5 on a high school Advanced Placement (AP) exam can earn up to:

  • Eight semester hours of credit for year courses
  • Three semester hours of credit for half-year courses

AP scores must be sent from the College Board directly to the University of Utah.

**Please Note:

  • We cannot take Advanced Placement scores from high school or college transcripts.
  • We cannot award duplicate credit for other exams and concurrent college courses completed prior to completing the exam.
  • If AP scores were awarded prior to 2011, an additional step must be taken in order to have your AP scores considered. After requesting your official scores be sent to the University of Utah through College Board, please send an email to requesting an evaluation for credit.
