How to get PLA Credit: AP Exams

Advanced Placement (AP) Exams

Apply your AP Exam credit to your degree or certificate program.

We work together in the PLA process:

  • You
  • Your Campus Admissions and Registrar Office
  • District Admissions and Records Office


  1. You
    • Send electronically your AP test scores from CollegeBoard to TCC (preferred method)
    • Deliver your AP test scores to your campus—you must give both the score report and a hard-copy fee receipt from CollegeBoard to your Campus Admissions and Registrar Office
  2. Campus Admissions & Registrar Office
    • Posts your TSI Status, if needed, based on certain eligible scores
    • Helps you register for your course if your AP credit satisfies a prerequisite for the course
    • Sends score report/receipt to the District Admissions and Records Office if scores are eligible for credit
  3. District Admissions & Records Office
    • Applies credit to your transcript after census date(s) but before current semester has ended
  4. You
    • Check My Progress or Unofficial Transcript in MyTCCTrack to confirm credit(s) are posted
