1.1. Advanced Placement (AP) Exam Credit

To view how UA awards credit for AP exams, see the UA Policy for AP Credit. 


Students can contact the Math Placement Office, placement@math.arizona.edu, for additional information about their individual circumstance. It is the student's responsibility to make sure he/she is enrolled in the correct UA Math course after college credits are processed into the UA system. 


Official scores must be sent to the UA Office of the Registrar.  If you did not designate the UA as a recipient of your score at the time of your exam, you go to the College Board Advanced Placement Program site and request your scores be sent to UA.  Once your score is processed by UA, you can view your credit in UAccess Student: Academic Record: Transfer Credit report.


Incoming students with AP, or anticipated AP, Math credit should attend Math Advising at their Orientation. We will discuss your circumstances so you are placed into the correct Math course.


Freshman or students who attend freshman orientation must have a placement through SAT I MSS, ACT MATH, or ALEKS PPL for entry into a course at or below the level of Calculus I, even students with college math credits. Incoming students should refer to the information in the Next Steps Center.
