UGA’s College Board AP Code: 5813


This policy is in effect for all undergraduate students entering UGA. Both resident and non-resident students are eligible to receive credit.
 
When submitting scores, please insure that the First Name, Middle Initial, Last Name, and Date of Birth on your AP record exactly matches the information on your UGA record.  Unmatched records will prevent the posting of your scores and credit.

Incoming first year students will have their AP credit awards posted to their records in July or shortly before each semester’s orientation sessions begin.  The College Board does not release scores on AP exams taken in May until after July 1.  This may impact students attending orientation sessions in June.  Students should speak to their academic advisor during orientation about potential AP credit that is not yet on their UGA record.  The student may adjust their class schedule throughout the registration period after AP scores and credit post; even if this is after their orientation session.  UGA encourages students with AP scores from prior years to submit these scores as soon as possible.

Transfer students will receive the AP credit for college-level courses they were awarded by their transfer institution as it appears on that institution’s official transcript. Transfer students who did not receive credit for their AP work at a former college or university are encouraged to submit their AP scores to UGA. Questions regarding how AP credits transfer can be addressed to the Office of the Registrar.
 
Credit will be awarded only once for the same subject, whether the credit is earned by examination, joint enrollment, transfer credit, or course credit. Credit is awarded in the order it was chronologically earned, with the most recent instance counting towards the degree. If duplicate credit exists among AP, IB, JT, or Departmental Exam, the source yielding the most credit will be awarded.
For sequence courses, you should plan to take the next course after the one for which you have received course credit. Please consult with your academic advisor for additional information.
Appeals:
You may opt not to accept credits if you see that acceptance of credits may disadvantage you. Please contact the Office of the Registrar to discuss the removal of credit earned through testing.  If you believe that the assessment of your work and subsequent awarding of credits for such is in error, you may file an appeal with the appropriate department chair and request a re-assessment. As with other academic matters, if the issue is not satisfactorily resolved at the department level, you may then appeal to the dean of the respective college. A final appeal is available to the Educational Affairs Committee through the vice president for instruction. The procedure for such an appeal can be found in Student Academic Services:

How can I see any AP credits I have earned at UGA?
Credits generally post shortly before orientation each semester for newly admitted students or within 7-10 business days after ordering scores for continuing UGA students.  A student can review AP credit earned by viewing courses previously taken under the student academic records menu in OASIS.  Credit earned through AP also appears in the degree program information on DegreeWorks.
What do I do if I can't see my AP credits on my academic record?
If you have matriculated at UGA and have reported scores to the University of Georgia but have not received credit, please contact the College Board to confirm the date that your scores were sent to UGA then contact the Office of the Registrar.
