Math AP Exam Credit

The University of Louisville awards credit on the basis of scores on Math AP Examinations. Scores must be submitted to the Office of Admissions as soon as they are available.

Upon receipt of test scores 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, so students will need to work with their academic advisor to ensure duplicate courses are not taken.
