Advanced Placement Program (AP)

Administered by the College Entrance Examination Board, this program allows high school students to take examinations for credit at the college level. High school counselors will assist students with testing arrangements. The following is a list of AP examinations for which OU awards credit, and the credit awarded for various scores received. Effective July 1, 2021, House Bill 2750 states institutions of higher education within the Oklahoma State System of Higher Education shall not require an Advanced Placement Exam score higher than 3 to award credit. Scores of 1 and 2 are not acceptable for credit. The courses listed in the various test-score columns are OU courses, and the last digit of the four-digit number indicates the number of semester hours earned when a student is awarded credit for the course. 

For questions concerning AP services call (888) 225-5427 (toll free) or email apstudents@info.collegeboard.org.
