AP Credit

While in high school, students can begin preparing for the Psychological & Brain Sciences and Biopsychology majors by taking AP courses. Our department accepts AP scores of 3 or higher in: Psychology, Statistics, and Calculus. Please check the LASAR PDF on the right hand side for a list of corresponding AP to UCSB courses.

University Registrar policy states that once AP credit is earned, a student is not allowed to take that equivalent course at UCSB. AP scores do not have UC GPA value. Therefore, courses fulfilled by AP credit are not included in UC GPA calculation.
