AP, IB & College Credit

Advanced Placement

Ursuline College grants advanced placement credit to entering first-year students who have earned a score of 3. 4, or 5 on a College Advanced Placement Examination. Enrolling students should have a report of the examination scores sent directly to the Office of Admission. Use our AP chart to see which AP courses will count for Ursuline College credit.

International Baccalaureate

Ursuline College encourages students to take the strongest high school curriculum available, and applauds the effort of students who choose IB when it is an option. Ursuline awards credit for scores of 5 or higher on HL exams. As with AP credit, student must have an official copy of their score sheet sent to Ursuline College.   

Transferring Transcripted Credit and Ohio's College Credit Plus (CCP) Program

High school students enrolled in college courses at regionally accredited institutions of higher education will have the opportunity to transfer their college credit to Ursuline as long as that credit appears on an official college transcript. In addition to other required application materials, students should submit official transcripts from each college attended. Transcripts are considered official when they are mailed directly to Ursuline College from the college or university. 
For credit to transfer to Ursuline, it must:
  • Be college-level (not remedial). At most colleges and universities this means that the course number is 100-level or higher.
  • Be issued from a college or university with regional accreditation. 
  • Carry a grade of C or higher.
If a direct equivalency to an Ursuline course can be established, the transferred credit may satisfy a specific requirement for your Ursuline degree program. If the equivalent course is not offered or required by Ursuline, the course will transfer in as elective credit, counting toward the total number of credits needed to earn a degree, without satisfying a specific course requirement. 

To learn more about course equivalencies, use our transfer credit search which summarizes courses previously transferred to Ursuline from other institutions, or contact your Admission Counselor who can always help you determine how your credit will transfer
