If you think your academic past can be a part of your Wake Forest future, we want to hear all about it.

AP and IB Credit

You may be able to receive credit for examinations that you have completed prior to matriculation at Wake Forest. Some of these credits will allow you to skip lower lever coursework or serve as a prerequisite for higher-level classes. AP or IB credit cannot be used to satisfy divisional requirements; however, these credits will count towards the 120 hours needed for graduation.

AP or IB scores must be submitted to the Office of the University Registrar no later than June 10 to be available for Round I Registration. Scores submitted later can still be used, but will not be available to allow you to elect out of, or into, certain classes until received by the University Registrar. If you know you will have AP or IB credit for a course but scores have not been submitted or received by the time of registration, wait to register for the course in question. You do not want to take a class at WFU for which you will obtain AP or IB credit.

International Baccalaureate Scores

Your scores must be reported directly to the Office of the University Registrar. To determine if your IB credits have been applied to your academic record, go to WIN > Virtual Campus > Academic Transcript. For more information regarding credit awarded, course equivalency and exemption please refer to the following: registrar.wfu.edu/academic/ap/ib-13-14/

Advanced Placement Scores

Scores of 4 or 5 will generally result in students being granted AP credit. Scores must be reported to the Office of the University Registrar directly from College Board (college code 5885). To determine if your AP credits have been applied to your academic record, go to WIN>Virtual Campus>Academic Transcript. For more information on credit awarded, course equivalency and exemption information for specific tests and scores, see the following: registrar.wfu.edu/academic/ap/advanced-placement-2013-2014

Transfer Work

If you have completed college-level work prior to matriculation at Wake Forest, you may transfer some or all of this credit. However, it must meet the following criteria to be considered for transfer credit:

1. Credits cannot have been used to meet high school graduation requirements.

2. Must have been taken at a college/university (not on a high school campus).

3. Credits must have been taken at the college/university along with other degree seeking college students.   The course cannot have been composed of mainly high school students.

4. Must have been taught by a regular member of the faculty of the college/university.

5. The credits must have been regularly offered (in classroom) at the college/university and not be on-line, distance, or correspondence credits.

6. Credits must have been taken after the beginning of the junior year of high school and yielded a grade of C or better.

If you meet all the criteria specified above, you may submit an official transcript from the college/university of this work to the Office of the University Registrar.  Additional information is available about transfer credits at registrar.wfu.edu/academic/transfer-work.
