AP Credit
Carefully check your AP score when you receive it in July. Have all AP and IB scores sent to the UCSD Office of Admissions as early as possible.
When the Office of Admissions receives your AP score:
- Your results will be posted in the Student Information System.
- The WebReg enrollment system verifies the course prerequisite has been satisfied for your math course.
- You will be allowed to enroll or waitlist that course.
If you have not met the course prerequisite, then you will not be allowed to enroll in that course.
