UT Dallas Undergraduate Advising

The University of Texas at Dallas evaluates Advanced Placement (AP) credit periodically. The equivalencies below are effective beginning with the Fall 2015 term.

Transferring Advanced Placement (AP) Credit

Entering freshmen must see their advisor to determine the best application of Advanced Placement (AP) credit. A freshman must weigh the advantages of accepting college credit through AP exams against the possible impact such credit might have on tuition rebate eligibility, tuition charges for excessive hours, the Texas Be-On-Time student loan program, and their readiness for subsequent courses in an academic sequence. In accordance with Texas Education Code 51.968, The University of Texas at Dallas will award undergraduate course credit for achieving the required AP examination scores below.

Courses shown in green meet Texas Core Curriculum requirements.
