Test Credits by Program


Advanced Placement (AP)

Scores & Credit: No credit is awarded for a score lower than 3, but individual subjects often require a higher minimum score.

Official Documentation: Official score reports must be sent from College Board to UD. The University does not receive the official score reports from the May test administration until mid-July. To order AP score reports, contact College Board at 866-444-5460 or via the website http://www.collegeboard.com. The University of Delaware's 4-digit college code is 5811.

Timing: The College Board will send the official scores in mid-July, and credits will post in the following weeks. We strongly encourage newly accepted Fall Semester freshmen to bring a printed (unofficial) copy of their AP scores with them to New Student Orientation. Review your scores with your advisor, and use the chart below to determine whether your AP courses will transfer to UD.

UD Advanced Placement (AP) Equivalency Chart: Fall 2019 / Spring 2020

Policy on AP Exam & College Dual Credit: Students that undertake a course experience via high school/college programs cannot receive both transfer and test credit for the same coursework. In those cases, UD recognizes the college transfer work and does not award the AP credit.


British GCE A-Levels (AS and A Levels)

Grades & Credit: Credit is awarded for grades A through E, but individual subjects often require a higher minimum score. If both A Subsidiary (AS) and A Level (A2) exams are passed in the same subject, credit is given only for the A2 exam.

Official Documentation: Students must present the official GCE certificate(s) to the Registrar's Office, by appointment. Upon verification, a copy will be made for the university's files and the original certificate(s) returned to the student.

Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE)

Grades & Credit: Credit is awarded for grades of 1, 2 and 3, with all grades earning the same credit. Each unit is normally equivalent to the credit of one UD course.

Official Documentation: Students must present the official CAPE certificate(s) to the Registrar's transfer credit office, by appointment. Upon verification, a copy will be made for the university's files and the original certificate(s) returned to the student.

French Classe Preparatoire aux Grandes Écoles (CPGE)

Grades & Credit: Credit is awarded for subjects applicable to UD's curriculum. Not all subjects may be accepted. Grades and credits will be converted to U.S. scales.

Official Documentation: An official transcript of the CPGE courses of study must be sent from the school to the University of Delaware, along with a certified literal translation into English, if the official transcript is not itself in English. In addition, an IERF Detail Report credential evaluation is required. Visit this UD page on IERF's website for instructions (how to request a Standard Application with Detail Report, and where to mail your documents). Also view this video for more information. Ask IERF to send your credential evaluation directly to the University of Delaware.

UD Equivalency:
Preliminary evaluation of coursework is as elective credit. We recommend students request departmental re-evaluation of individual courses that may be applicable to specific UD degree requirements. Information about course re-evaluation is available at International Transfer Credit.


International Baccalaureate (IB)

Grades & Credit: Credit is awarded for Higher Level exams only. No credit is given for a grade lower than 4, but individual subjects may require a higher minimum grade. A maximum of 1 year (normally 2 introductory courses) of credit may be given in a subject.

Tech Prep Delaware

Credit Eligibility: Students must meet the Tech Prep program college entrance criteria and have successfully completed at least one semester of study (minimum of 12 credits toward a degree, 2.0 minimum cumulative GPA).

Official Documentation: Current students (starting in 2018-19 or earlier) must present the original Tech Prep Credit Eligibility Certificate to the Registrar's Office. Upon verification, a copy will be made for the university's files and the original certificate returned to the student.

For students matriculating as of Fall 2019, the State of Delaware will send Tech Prep Credit Eligibility directly to the Univ. of Delaware. After completing your first semester at UD (12 cr., 2.0 cum. GPA), email the Registrar's Office from your UD email account to request that your Tech Prep credits be posted (transfercredit@udel.edu - with "Tech Prep" and your UDID in the subject line).

UD Equivalency: UD awards credit for ANFS 166DE or PLSC 166DE, depending on the course. For students presenting the original Tech Prep Credit Eligibility Certificate, the initials of each institution granting credit for a course appear on the certificate, following the course title. Students should check their certificates (or contact the State of DE) to verify that "UD" is listed before contacting the Registrar's Office.
