Advanced Credit

UNF encourages prospective students to seek opportunities for academic enrichment while in high school. We are happy to accept up to 45 credit hours earned through credit-by-exam mechanisms like those outlined below.

Advanced Placement

The Advanced Placement (AP) program administered by the College Board provides qualified high school students the opportunity to take college-level courses on the high school campus. The courses are taught by high school teachers and culminate with a three-hour standardized examination.


Credit earned through the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) at a Florida public institution prior to initial enrollment at UNF will receive equivalent transfer credit. CLEP scores for which credit is not awarded at another Florida public institution will be evaluated on the basis of national norms in accordance with the statewide articulation agreement.

By presenting appropriate CLEP general examination scores, students may earn as many as 30 semester hours of credit. The UNF Office of Admissions will determine the applicability of these credits toward completion of general education requirements. For additional information, contact your high school guidance counselor.

The International Baccalaureate Program

The IB Program is a Geneva-based program of study consisting of a comprehensive system of courses and exams which focus upon the development of a high quality, liberal arts education. UNF recognizes the International Baccalaureate Program and may award up to a maximum of 30 semester hours of credit. Completion of the total IB Program will enable students to enter UNF at the sophomore level. 

The Cambridge AICE Program

The AICE program is an international, advanced secondary curriculum and assessment program equivalent to the British system of "A-Levels." Students receiving a passing score on their AICE exams will receive credit as recommended by the state's Articulation Coordinating Committee.
