Award of Incoming Credits

  • Credit will be awarded only once for the same course, whether from credit by examination, dual enrollment, transfer credit, or UF course credit.
  • UF course credit takes precedence over all other forms of credit for the same course.
  • Credit awarded for acceptable dual enrollment or transfer courses takes precedence over credit by examination.
  • If duplicate credit exists among AICE, AP, CLEP, or IB, the exam yielding the most credit will be awarded.

Guidelines for Credit Awarded by AICE, AP, CLEP, or IB Examinations

  • A maximum of 45 semester credits may be granted by combining AICE, AP, CLEP, and IB credit.
  • Students beginning in the fall or spring term must have taken the exams (AICE, AP, CLEP, and IB) and have their scores reported to the university before the end of their first term of enrollment at UF.
  • Students who begin in the Summer A term must have taken the exam(s) and had their scores reported to the university before the end of their first Summer B/C term.
  • Students who begin in the Summer B term must have taken the exam(s) and had their scores reported to the university before the end of their first fall term.
  • If a student submits appropriate scores, UF will grant credit for the UF course(s) that most closely match the content of the exam as determined by the State of Florida. Her or his transcript will reflect the course(s) with grades of P (for Pass). P grades will not be calculated into the student's GPA.
  • Equivalent courses earned by examination generally fulfill the same requirements that the UF course fulfills.
