AP, IB, and Transfer Credits (Fall 2020 Curriculum)

You put in a lot of time and hard work to get those Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) credits! 

These credits will transfer to UO, and depending on your test scores, may count toward honors college requirements in quantitative reasoning, foreign language, UO disciplinary courses, and UO electives. Note when requesting the submission of score reports, be sure to have them sent directly to the UO.

You will still need to take all classes with an HC subject code, which are designed to be an immersive learning experience. These classes are where we build community, create fabulous mentorship relationships between students and professors, and benefit from the intellectual energy of having majors from all across campus together in one place. 

Take a look at the chart below to see how your AP, IB or college transfer credits fit in. If you still have questions, you can take a look at the CHC's Graduation Requirements, or check out the university registrar's pages for AP credits and IB credits.

Math / CIS (Quantitative Reasoning) Accepted Transfer Courses 

All honors college students must complete one course (4 credits) of quantitative reasoning. This requirement can be fulfilled with transfer, AP, or IB credits. On your Transfer Evaluation Report, courses that fulfill the BS Math requirement (indicated by >4 or >5) will fulfill this requirement.  

UO Disciplinary Courses 

All honors college students must complete three courses outside the honors college, one in each of the university Areas of Inquiry: Arts and Letters (>1), Social Science (>2), and Science (>3). On your Transfer Evaluation Report, courses that fulfill these requirements (indicated by >1, >2, >3) will fulfill this requirement in the honors college.   

UO Electives 

If you have AP, IB or transfer credits in a course of study that does not count toward CHC requirements, you can apply those credits toward fulfilling general UO electives. Electives represent approximately one third (60 credits) of the total credit hours (180 credits) required to graduate from the University of Oregon.
