2008-09 Undergraduate Catalog

Award of Incoming Credits

  • Credit will be awarded only once for the same subject, whether from credit by examination, dual enrollment, transfer credit or UF course credit.

  • UF course credit takes precedence over all other forms of credit for the same course.

  • Credit awarded for acceptable dual-enrollment or transfer courses takes precedence over credit by examination.

  • If duplicate credit exists among AICE, AP, CLEP or IB, the exam yielding the most credit will be awarded.

Guidelines for credit awarded by AICE, AP, CLEP or IB examination programs:

  • A maximum of 45 semester hours may be granted by combining AICE, AP, CLEP and IB credit.

  • Students beginning in the fall or spring term must have taken the exams (AICE, AP, CLEP and IB) and have their scores reported to the university before the end of their first term of enrollment at UF.

  • Students who begin in the summer must have taken the exam(s) and had their scores reported to the university before the end of their first fall term.

  • If the student submits appropriate scores, UF will grant credit for the UF course(s) that most closely match the content of the exam. The student's transcript will reflect the course(s) with grades of P (for Pass). P grades will not be calculated into the student's GPA.

  • Equivalent courses earned by examination generally fulfill the same requirements that the UF course fulfills.
