How do I report my Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) credit?

CU-Boulder participates in the Advanced Placement (AP) program of the College Board. More than one-third of Boulder's entering freshmen submit AP test scores each year. Official scores must be sent to the admissions office directly from the College Board. CU-Boulder's CEEB/ETS code is 004841.

International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations, whether leading to a full IB diploma or to an IB certificate, often qualify students for advanced standing at CU-Boulder. In general, credit is granted for approved IB examinations at the higher level with a score of 4 or better. Students admitted to the University of Colorado Boulder, who have graduated from high school having successfully completed an IB Diploma program shall be granted 24 semester hours of college credit. This credit will be considered applicable toward degree requirements ONLY if approved by the college or school. Depending on the student’s degree program, some of the 24 credits may not be applicable towards degree requirements.  No CU-Boulder tuition will be charged for these credits and the 24 credits will only be granted if the student receives a score of 4 or better on an examination administered as part of the IB Diploma program. If the student scores less than 4 on each IB subject test, the credit hours granted shall be reduced accordingly. Official scores must be sent to the admissions office directly from the IB organization.

Note:  Scores should be sent once all tests are completed and scores are reported--usually at the end of the senior year and not in between your junior and senior year.
