Transferring Credit Toward Your Degree

AP/IB Credit

At CNR you can save the world and see it at the same time!

You can translate AP and IB test scores into units of credit at UC Berkeley; this process is handled by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

You can choose to apply the credit you receive from AP, IB, or GCE test scores to your degree process to fulfill only courses that your major allows a replacement for. You will need to contact the advisor for your specific major for more information.

Junior Transfer Credit

Students entering CNR as junior transfers may apply up to 70 units of credit from their coursework at other institutions toward their degree progress; this process is handled by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.

University Extension

University Extension courses with numbers below 200 and preceded by an X plus another letter (such as XB132) are equivalent to courses offered at UC-Berkeley. They satisfy the same requirements and the credit is counted as equal to the same course taken at Berkeley.

UC-Extension courses with numbers below 200 preceded by an X alone may be considered for use to fulfill requirements on a case-by-case basis. Check with your Undergraduate Staff Advisor before enrolling in such a course.

Note that if you are registered exclusively at UC Extension you are not considered a Berkeley student, even if you are applying your credit toward a Berkeley degree.

Incoming freshmen and transfer students for Fall should schedule an advising appointment with the CNR College Advisor before applying for concurrent enrollment.
