Earn Credit by Examination

Cambridge International AS & A Level and AICE

Students may receive credit by examination for achieving acceptable grades on the Cambridge International Examination (CIE).  Grades on tests should be sent to the Office of the Registrar at the University of North Carolina Wilmington for credit evaluation.  Listed below are the various CIE subjects, required grades, UNC Wilmington course equivalents, and credit awarded.

Course equivalencies may change at any time without notice, as updates or corrections are made.

Don't see your course listed? If you do not see your course listed, it means we have not previously evaluated that course. Articulation is subject to approval from the appropriate academic unit. If we do not have an equivalency established, we will send it to the academic unit for review upon receipt. In the event that an exact equivalent is not approved, you will be given open elective credit as long as there is a satisfactory grade earned.
