Advanced Placement Credit

The University of Louisville awards credit on the basis of scores on the Advanced Placement Examinations of the College Entrance Examination Board for the scores indicated below. Scores must be submitted to the Office of Admissions as soon as they are available. CollegeBoard's Advanced Placement website provides information on submitting your AP scores to UofL. Use the institutional code 1838 when requesting that your AP scores be sent to the University of Louisville.

Upon receipt of test scores from either College Board or from an official high school transcript, the appropriate number of credit hours will be entered on the student's record. Test scores for new freshmen are received after the time of summer orientation/registration. Students will need to work with their academic adviser to ensure duplicate courses are not taken.
