Advanced Placement Credit

Advance Placement (AP) is a program of The College Board through which a secondary student completes college-level courses that are designated as AP in high schools. A student may earn college credits by demonstrating a specified level of performance on AP examinations. The AP examinations, which are scored on a 5-point scale, can be taken by any student who feels prepared by independent study or other preparation as well as by students who complete AP courses.

Riverland shall grant college credit for scores of 3 or higher on AP examinations. The credits generated from advanced placement exams shall be used for specific college course that covers substantially similar material to an existing course. Elective credits shall be granted when the exam is not substantially similar to an existing course. A student must provide the college with an official report of AP examination scores in order to receive credit. <>
