AP/IB (HL) or CLEP exams: • If you do not know the results of AP/IB (HL) and CLEP exams at this time, you will need to make a judgment about the potential for receiving credits. • You may check the AP/IB (HL) score tables online in order to determine the exam scores necessary for the awarding of University of Miami credit for specific courses. Dual Enrollment/Transfer credits: • If you took a course for college credit, you must submit official transcripts to the UM Office of Admission from the issuing College or University. • A listing on the high school transcript is not sufficient to award college credit.

The "Areas of Knowledge" aspect of the university's general education requirements is based on the notion of cognates. • A cognate is a group of at least three related courses for at least 9 credits.The courses in a cognate are related in a topical, thematic, interdisciplinary, sequential, or other such fashion, so that completion of a cognate provides coherent depth of knowledge in the area. Students must take three cognates: • Arts & Humanities (A&H) • People & Society (P&S) • Science,Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) • As a first semester freshman, we recommend you choose a course in the “Arts and Humanities cognate.” To read more about cognates, go to www.miami.edu/cognates.
