Advanced Placement

Students who complete the Advanced Placement (AP) program in High School may be eligible for college credit if the appropriate score was earned on The College Board national examination. Where appropriate, AP credit may apply toward the general education distribution requirements of any program at Clark College. However, students intending to transfer with an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science-Transfer degree should consult with the Admissions Office at the baccalaureate institution of their choice for information on AP credit policies. Not all institutions recognize AP credit posted to the Clark College transcript. A maximum of fifteen (15) credits in AP coursework can apply to the Associate in Arts or the Associate in Science Transfer programs. Refer to Section B of the Clark College catalog for additional restrictions by program.

Procedure for Requesting AP Credits

You should have an official copy of your AP scores sent to Clark College, Attn:  Credential Evaluations/MS #21B, 1933 Fort Vancouver Way, Vancouver, WA  98663. Once scores are received and reviewed, a letter will be sent to you regarding the status of your AP scores.  If the scores meet the minimum standards, a petition form will also be sent. You will need to complete the petition form, pay a $5.00 transcription fee at the Cashier’s Office, and submit both the petition form and receipt of payment to the Welcome Center in PSU 002.  AP credits are posted to the transcript at the end of the quarter.


Credit is posted with an “S” grade based on the following recommendations:
