Advanced Placement in Mathematics There are several ways well-prepared students can exempt entry level mathematics courses before beginning classes at UGA. Exempted courses can be used to satisfy prerequisites for higher level courses and/or often fulfill core distribution requirements. Some scores may garner course credit as well, please see more information below. **NOTICE** It is common for AP exams scores (AB and/or BC) to not be released until AFTER the date incoming students have their orientation. Students have two options: Student can wait for their AP scores prior to registering for any Math courses Students are welcome to take the Math Placement Exam prior to receiving their AP scores as a second option to test out of/exempt UGA Math courses. This is usually scheduled during the orientation visit. This is a personal choice for each student to decide which option is best for you. College Board Advanced Placement Program There are two AP (Advanced Placement) Calculus exams (AB and/or BC) The AB Exam Covers differential calculus, integrals and some applications, and elementary differential equations. Students scoring 4 or 5 on the AB exam: Place out of Calculus I (MATH 2250) Receive 4 semester hours of credit for Calculus I (MATH 2250) When these students come to UGA, they can directly register for MATH 2260 (Calculus II for Science and Engineering), its honors version (MATH 2310H) or Calculus with Theory course (MATH 2400 or MATH 2400H). Any major requiring MATH 2200 will accept the credit for MATH 2250. Students scoring 3 on the AB exam: Place (exempt) out of Precalculus (MATH 1113) without credit We generally advise students scoring 3 on the AB exam to begin their UGA studies with a differential calculus course (MATH 2200, MATH 2250, or MATH 2400(H)). The BC Exam Covers both differential and integral calculus, and infinite series. Students scoring a 3 on the BC exam: Place out of Calculus I (MATH 2250) Receive 4 semester hours of credit for Calculus I (MATH 2250) Students scoring a 4 or 5 on the BC exam: Place out of Calculus I (MATH 2250 and Math 2260) Receive 8 semester hours of credit for Calculus I (MATH 2250) & Calculus II (MATH 2260)The AB Exam IB Equivalences IB Level and Score Mathematics credit earned HL4 MATH 1101 (3 credit hours) HL5 MATH 1101 (3 credit hours) HL6 MATH 1113 (3 credit hours) HL7 MATH 1113 (3 credit hours) SL5 MATH 1101 (3 credit hours) SL6 MATH 1101 (3 credit hours) SL7 MATH 1101 (3 credit hours) Please follow this link to UGA IB Equivalencies page College Board Achievement Test MATH 1101 may be exempted without credit by scoring at least 670 on the SAT II test or by scoring at least 750 on the SAT II with calculator test. College Level Examination Program UGA no longer awards credit by CLEP.
