Advanced Placement Test Scores

Johnston Community College awards college credit for students who successfully meet the minimum required score for the College Board's Advanced Placement (AP) test program.  Credit for an AP exam can be awarded upon the receipt of an official score report mailed directly from the College Board.

A student score report will not be accepted as an official document for credit approval.  You may order your AP score report from the College Board's website through your student account.
