How can I see any AP credits I have earned at UGA?

A student can view test scores in the Student Information Menu in Athena. Credit earned through AP also appears in the degree program information on DegreeWorks.


This policy is in effect for all undergraduate students entering UGA. Tests taken after a student matriculates are not eligible for credit. Exception: students participating in Dual Enrollment at UGA may submit test scores with dates that coincide with the semesters they participated in Dual Enrollment.

For incoming new undergraduate students, AP scores on file at UGA are evaluated for credit at the point the student has accepted an offer of admission. Additional scores that are received for incoming new undergraduate students will be evaluated at the time of receipt.

For continuing undergraduate students who did not send their scores prior to matriculating at UGA, AP scores received by the university are evaluated for credit based on the AP credit equivalencies in effect at time of receipt.

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.

Incoming freshmen submitting transcripts with Joint Enrollment or Move on When Ready course credits who also have AP credit posted on the transfer transcript will not have the AP credits posted to their UGA record by the Undergraduate Admissions Office. The official AP scores must be sent directly from the College Board to receive credit.

Credit will be awarded only once for the same subject, whether the credit is earned by examination, Dual Enrollment, transfer credit, or course credit. If duplicate credit exists among AP, IB, SATII, or Departmental Exam, the source yielding the most credit will be awarded. Credit earned through testing will not replace graded credit in that same course.

Students may opt out of test credit if they see that acceptance of credit may disadvantage them. Students should make this request within their first year of attendance at UGA.

Changes to UGA AP credit equivalencies are effective as of November 1 of each year and will be published on the UGA AP Credit Equivalency webpage: UGA AP Credit Equivalencies

Additional Information:

The College Board does not release scores on AP exams taken in May until after July 1 of that same test year. This may impact incoming undergraduate 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.

For sequence courses such as foreign language, English, Math, 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.


If you believe that the assessment of your work and subsequent awarding of credits for such is in error please contact the Registrar’s Office. If you disagree with the re-assessment, you may file an appeal with the appropriate department chair and request an additional 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:
