If you have both AP and IB credit, the IB credit is awarded first, then any additional AP credit will be awarded. If IB credit has been awarded and duplicates AP credit, the AP credit will be reduced by the amount of credit awarded for an IB subject in a specific area.

You must be matriculated at the University of Utah to have IB credit recorded. The University of Utah awards the International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma and up to 30 credits per student when the appropriate paperwork is submitted to the Admissions Office.

In accordance with the state mandated common exam equivalencies, students with passing scores will first have credit awarded for any exams with equivalents. If you have earned an IB diploma but have fewer than 30 credits from the course equivalencies, the difference will be awarded as a block of university elective credit.

**Exam equivalencies are subject to change without notice

Beginning March 2023, all prior learning credit will be evaluated and posted according to the equivalencies in place at the time the exam was taken. Credit posted prior to March 2023 will not be changed with this new policy. Questions about posting of exam credit should be addressed to Office of Admissions at Questions regarding exam equivalencies should be addressed to the Registrar’s Office at
