There are several credit-by-examination programs that earn credit toward a UF degree. The following guidelines apply:
If you submit appropriate scores, UF will grant credit and post the course equivalencies to your UF transcript. Equivalent courses earned by examination generally fulfill the same requirements that the UF course fulfills.
Credit will be awarded only once for the same subject, whether the credit is earned by examination, dual enrollment, transfer credit or UF course credit. UF course credit takes precedence over all other forms of credit. Credit awarded for dual enrollment or transfercourses takes precedence over credit by examination. If duplicate credit exists among AICE, AP, IB or CLEP, the exam yielding the most credit will be awarded.
Once scores are submitted, they will be evaluated to see if they meet minimum requirements. If so, the student will receive credit for UF course equivalencies that will appear on the student's UF transcript.
Scores of 3 or higher on AP foreign language exams fulfill the foreign language proficiency requirement of College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Journalism and B.A. programs in the College of Fine Arts.
Students receiving IB examination scores of 4 or higher on both higher-level and standard-level examinations may receive UF credit.
