Advanced Placement Credit

The Advanced Placement Program’s examinations are administered through high schools. For information regarding the courses or examinations, please contact your high school counselor or principal.  Additional information may be obtained through the Advanced Placement Program, 609-771-7300 or www.collegeboard.com. An original College Grade Report must be sent from AP directly to Georgia College (CEEB 5252) in order to receive credit. 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.

The following equivalencies are effective for students entering Georgia College in Fall 2015. Equivalencies for future students are subject to change as a result of changes in AP test content and Georgia College course/curriculum changes.
