AP courses? Early college? Summer classes? Confused yet? Don’t worry. We’re here to help you get those sweet, sweet credit hours from any institution transferred right here to UNC.
Since AP Scores are coming back in a month, you might be interested in where those 3s, 4s and 5s will land you regarding course credit.
A big part of your education at UNC will be devoted to completing General Education, or Gen Ed, requirements. These Gen Eds ensure that you get the liberal arts education you paid for.
Gen Eds span across topics from Quantitative Intensive to the World before 1750. The typical student has about 20 Gen Eds that need to be completed, so it helps to knock them out as soon as possible. The good news is that you may already have a head start!
AP and IB Scores
For all the future STEM kids out there, a 5 in AP Biology or AP Physics B, the equivalent to a 6 in HL Biology or a 7 in HL Physics, will earn you eight credit hours along with three Gen Eds: Physical and Life Sciences, Physical and Life Sciences with lab and Communication Intensive.
