Eligible Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) scores may be used toward a bachelor’s degree. The type and level of test credit awarded is standardized across the undergraduate schools, though each school has separate rules regarding the use of test credit to fulfill degree requirements.
The chart below specifies AP and IB credit recognition for students pursuing the Bachelor of Music degree. Bachelor of Arts in Music and Bachelor of Science in Music degree students may use two AP or IB credits in a single distribution area to fulfill that requirement. Dual degree students use the AP/IB credit recognition guidelines of the non-music school.
Note: Students who entered prior to fall 2018 should review the Registrar's Office AP and IB Credit Recognition Archive
