Advanced Placement (AP)
In order to receive credit for AP tests, a student must earn a score of 3 or higher and have an official score report sent to Vance-Granville Community College. In addition, the student must also send an official high school transcript showing that the corresponding AP course was completed. For more information on AP credit, please visit the College Board website at: https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/creditandplacement
College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
In order to receive credit for CLEP tests, a student must earn the ACE (American Council on Education) recommended score of 50 or higher and have an official score report sent to Vance-Granville Community College. For more information on CLEP, please visit the College Board website at: https://clep.collegeboard.org/exam
Transfer credit will be awarded for successful completion of ACE credit approved courses as reflected on an official military JST (Joint Services Transcript) if equivalent in both content and hours to course offerings at VGCC.
VGCC awards one course per qualifying exam. Credit for AP and CLEP test scores are entered as transfer credit on the student’s VGCC transcript and do not count towards the student’s VGCC grade point average. A total of 75% of a degree or diploma may be earned as transfer credit. At least 25% of credits must be earned at VGCC for successful degree or diploma completion.
