Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and Cambridge Credits

Students may apply for college credit through the examinations in various academic subjects given by the Advanced Placement Program of the College Board, through the International Baccalaureate examinations, through Cambridge examinations, or through College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests. The completed IB Diploma will earn a minimum of 15 credits.

Prospective students should consult the Transfer Information page at the Office of the Registrar’s webpage for information on the examination scores required for credit in particular subject areas. Additional information may also be obtained from the Office of Admissions.

To apply for credit, students must have official examination results forwarded to the Registrar at the University before matriculation. The University of Mary Washington’s CEEB code is 5398.
