Test Credit

The University of Delaware awards test credit for select secondary and post-secondary examinations and education programs.

General Information

The University of Delaware recognizes the secondary and post-secondary exam programs listed below. Academic departments review the curriculum for each specific test to confirm eligibility for credit, qualifying scores, and UD equivalencies. If an exam is approved for test credit, students may receive a standard UD course, elective credit, or both. Credits awarded and scores required are at the discretion of the department.

For exams taken before a student matriculates to UD, students receive credit per the chart for the academic year in which they enter UD. For exams taken after a student has matriculated, students receive credit per the chart for the academic year in which they take the test. Charts are posted in the links below.

To request consideration for credit, students must submit the program's official certifying document (e.g., original certificate, score report, transcript). Refer below to each program for detailed information.

For tests taken more than 7 years ago: Depending on changes to the test curriculum, UD may award 166T elective credit instead of what appears on the charts below. In this case, the student may send a copy of the official exam curriculum from the year of their exam to a UD department for review. Equivalencies would be approved on a case-by-case basis.

Policy on Test and College Dual Credit:
A course may be awarded credit only once. In cases where a student received Dual Enrollment college credit and also took a test listed below, only one credential will earn credit. The Registrar’s Office reviews these cases after the start of each major semester and will notify a student if their posted credit has been changed.

General information about our test and transfer policies is found here in the Undergraduate Programs section of the UD Academic Catalog.
