Advanced Placement (AP)

Advanced Placement (AP) program examinations are administered through high schools. For information regarding the courses or examinations, prospective students should contact their high school counselor or principal. Additional information may be obtained through the Advanced Placement Program, (609) 771-7300, or www.collegeboard.com.

Georgia College awards credit for most Advanced Placement examinations. Equivalencies are reviewed and posted each year on the GC website; published equivalencies are subject to change as a result of changes in Advanced Placement test content and Georgia College course or curriculum changes.

To receive credit for Advanced Placement, a student must obtain the minimum credit-earning score (usually a 3, although some disciplines require higher scores), and send an original College Grade Report directly from the College Board to Georgia College (CEEB 5252). This request may be made when students register for the exam.

A "K" grade will be awarded for AP credit. This grade will not affect the student's grade point average but will count toward total hours and will fulfill degree requirements.
