Advanced Placement (AP) Credit
Ohio students who earn a score of 3 or higher on a College Board AP examination are guaranteed to receive college credit, mainly in general education areas, upon entrance to any of Ohio’s public institutions of higher education.
AP Credit Awarding Procedure
- Students must visit the official College Board website to view their AP score(s) and/or request to have them sent to specific institutions. Students must have the College Board send their score(s) to: Cuyahoga Community College/ Office of the Registrar/ P.O. Box 5966/ Cleveland, OH 44101
- The registrar will evaluate AP score(s) upon receipt to determine applicable credit. After evaluation, the Office of the Registrar will send results to the student’s Tri C email address. If AP credit is awarded, it will post to the student’s academic record within five business days (during peak enrollment period, time may be longer).
