    Advanced Placement examinations are available to high school juniors and seniors after successfully completing advanced placement courses.

Advanced Placement – Credit by Examination

You challenged yourself in the classroom, so earn college credit for that learning.

It’s no secret that your AP courses were challenging and perhaps even a bit stressful, but in return, you:
  • Are letting colleges know that you’re serious about your education.
  • Have the ability to earn college credit and the potentially skip courses if you do/did well on the AP Exam.
  • Acquired the ability to on save tuition costs and help you graduate on time.

What is CCBC's AP acceptance policy?

  • CCBC students may earn up to 30 credits via AP - Credit by Examination.
  • AP credit will only be awarded and posted on a CCBC transcript for students who are enrolled in and attending CCBC credit courses.
  • CCBC students must achieve minimum scores on tests appropriate to their desired courses.
