Credit for these exams is granted under the following conditions:

  • A maximum of 12 AP credits may be earned in a specific subject area.
  • A maximum of 24 AP credits may be applied toward a TVCC certificate.
  • A maximum of 45 AP credits may be applied toward a TVCC degree.
  • AP credit is awarded as recommended by the American Council of Education (ACE) guidelines.
  • AP credit is not graded and will not affect the GPA.
  • A student must earn credit at TVCC before AP credit will be awarded.
