CREDIT POLICY FOR ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAMS

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program of the College Entrance Examination Board gives students the opportunity to pursue college-level studies while still in high school.  The AP examinations are offered annually by high schools which participate in this program.  Appropriate credit is awarded for scores of 3, 4, or 5.  Students desiring AP credit must submit official test scores to the Admissions Office.  Credit will be awarded after one regular semester of enrollment at EACC.  AP credit is not awarded for a course the student has already completed at the college level.

  1. Arkansas public colleges and universities agree to award course credit for performance on the Advanced Placement exams using the following guidelines:
    • The award of course credit for a score of 3 will be left to the discretion of the institution.
    • All institutions will award some level of course credit for a score of 4 or 5.

  2. If student has received credit from a college or university for a score as designated above and transfers to another Arkansas public college or university, the receiving institution will accept the credit for that course(s) in the same manner in which course credit is accepted for other courses transferred from an accredited institution of higher education.  Every effort should be made to assist students in keeping AP course credits that have been awarded previously by a regionally accredited institution.

  3. Each institution will clearly communicate its policy and acceptance of AP exams by providing the following information: the name of the AP exam, the corresponding college/university course(s), and the amount of credit awarded for acceptable scores on the exam.

  4. This information will be printed in the next available edition of the school’s catalog.  The information will also be placed on the institution’s web page and will be available at the appropriate offices within the college or university.
