Advanced Placement (AP) Program


The College participates in the Advanced Placement (AP) Program of the College Entrance Examination Board. Through this program, high school students who plan to enroll at ABAC can take AP examinations in several subject areas. If students achieve the minimum score detailed in the AP Examination Score Requirements Table below, the College will award regular college credit in the subject areas of the exam(s), provided the subject area(s) are taught by the College. High school students can gain college credit and/or advanced placement at ABAC before actually beginning college. Students needing further information about the AP Program should contact their high school counselor.

Because of variation in credit awarded by different USG institutions, students who are awarded AP credit at ABAC and plan to transfer to another institution should determine what AP credit is accepted at their intended transfer institution. Official College Board transcripts with the AP scores will be required for any AP credit to be awarded.
