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.

Submit AP Scores to TCC

AP scores submitted for credit should be officially sent to TCC through College Board.

To start the process, email the following to any campus Testing Center:

  • Copy of your scores
  • Receipt from College Board, indicating that scores were sent to TCC.

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

If your scores are accepted, the grade for the course will appear as "CR" on your transcript. Credit will not be posted on your transcript until the end of the semester during which you submitted your scores.
