Advanced Placement (AP) Credit

Advanced Placement (AP) exams are College Board exams offered to students while they're still in high school. Learn more about AP exams on the College Board website.

TCC does not provide testing for AP exams but does accept AP scores for college credit.

How do I submit my AP scores to TCC?

AP scores submitted for credit should be officially sent to TCC through College Board. Learn about sending AP scores via College Board.

While you wait for your official score report to arrive at TCC, you can get immediate help from a campus Admissions and Registrar Office. Be sure to have a printout of your AP score report and a receipt showing that your order has been placed for the official report.

When will AP scores show up on my transcript?

If your scores are accepted, the grade for the course will appear as "CR" on your transcript. Scores will be posted to your transcript once you have an equal number of TCC courses on your transcript (usually before your first term of enrollment has ended).

Is there a fee to add AP scores to my transcript?

There is no fee for posting AP credit to your transcript.
