UA is very generous with these credits. These credits can be directly applied to Core Curriculum (aka General Ed classes). I don't know of many colleges that are as generous with these credits AND will let you apply the credits to required classes. Typically, other schools give less credits, require higher scores, and/or will only let these credits let you enroll in a higher level class.
For example...It is not unusual for a UA student who has credit from 7 AP classes to enter UA with 45 credit hours - which is the same as being a "second-semester sophomore."
If you'll have many these credits, it may be easy for you to have a double major. If so, you might qualify for a scholarship award from either department if you declare both majors when applying (be sure to put the correct majors on your scholarship app, too).
For instance, an incoming freshmen with a Presidential, NMF, or other scholarship, who declares Engineering as his majorn , might also get an additional $2500 per year from the Engineering dept. :)
Of course, by entering as a sophomore from these credits also allows many students to graduate a year early, a nice savings, or to pursue a Masters Degree at the same time.
If you forgot to do this, correct the situation with Student Affairs office ASAP.
BTW...it doesn't matter which AP English class you take, if you get a 4 or 5 in either one, then you get 6 English Comp credits. If you get a 3 in one, and a 3 in the other, then you also get 6 credits. Getting 6 English Comp credits fulfills the freshman English requirement.
