A student who has received college level training in secondary school and who has a score of 3, 4, or 5 on the appropriate Advanced Placement examination, upon request will be granted placement and credit for comparable courses at Collin College.

A student must have completed six semester hours of traditional credit at Collin and have successful completion of a course within the last 12 months to have non-traditional credit applied to their record.

AP credit previously applied at another institution of higher education does not automatically transfer to Collin.  For the credit to be applied at Collin, the student must have their AP score report sent to Collin from the College Board and request the credit be applied to their Collin record.

An official score report must be sent to Collin from the College Board.  The College Code for AP is 1951.  The student must contact the Director of Testing Office to request AP credit be applied to his/her record. This is not an automatic process upon receipt of the College Board official AP Score Report.
