AP Credit Policy

Cerritos College will grant degree-applicable credit for College Board Advanced Placement examinations, based on a policy change from the community college Chancellor's Office resulting from an assembly bill. There is now a uniform statewide community college policy on the use of AP for the AA degree. A score of 3, 4 or 5 is required in order to receive units toward the A.A. degree. The number of units earned through Advanced Placement exams will be noted on the student's transcript. AP exams that do not specify a general education area will receive elective credit. AP Credit granted can be used to satisfy Cerritos College General Education requirements for the A.A. degree
