Section B: Degree & Certificate Requirements


Procedure for Requesting AP Credits

Currently recognized AP examinations and their direct equivalencies are listed below. For any AP test that is not listed below, a score of 3 or better must be earned in order to receive 5 credits of Specified Electives. Credit is posted with an “S” grade at the end of the quarter for which the score report was received, once a transcript record has been established. No credits will be awarded for an examination if the student has already earned credit in a duplicate course; a maximum of sixty (60) credits in AP coursework can apply towards degree/certificate requirements.

Students should have an official copy of their AP scores sent to Clark College, Attn: Credential Evaluations/GHL 108, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way, Vancouver, WA 98663. Once scores are received and reviewed, an email will be sent to the student at the Clark College student email address regarding the credits to be awarded. AP credits are posted to the transcript at the end of the quarter in which the scores were submitted as long as the student is enrolled in that quarter.
