Advanced Placement and IB Credit

We honor the work you have done in Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) courses prior to your arrival on campus. These courses prepare you very well for the rigors of college coursework and give you the flexibility to pick up a second major or several minors as part of your degree program.

The University of Arkansas online catalog has helpful charts that detail how AP credits and IB credits may be used to satisfy specific courses offered by the university. For students who have received college credit through another institution of higher education, we encourage you to view the university's course equivalency guide. Regardless of which college credits you bring to the Honors College, talk to the honors program director in your college to learn which credits will apply towards your degree program.

"I came in with a lot of AP credits, which allows me to take a history course on U.S. political parties in the morning and a business intelligence class focused on statistics, modeling and data mining in the afternoon. It's great to learn at such a high level on such disparate topics."
