AP, IB & Transfer Credits

If you are applying with Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), or College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) credits, it is possible that your credits will transfer to the Clark Honors College and meet some of your course requirements.  

These credits may count toward Honors College requirements in quantitative reasoning, foreign language, UO disciplinary courses, and UO electives. Please note: When requesting the submission of score reports, be sure to have them sent directly to the UO Office of Admissions, not the Honors College. 

You will still need to take all classes with an HC subject code, which are designed to be part of 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 other college course transfer credits fit in. If you still have questions, you can take a look at the CHC's Graduation Requirements, or check out the UO Registrar's page on Alternative Ways to Earn Credit
