AP Credit Policy

At CMC, credit and/or placement for AP and IB examinations is evaluated on a subject-by-subject basis by the appropriate departments and is subject to final approval by the faculty. In some subjects, students will receive credit for AP scores of 4 or 5, and IB higher level (HL) exam scores of 6 or 7. In other subjects, they may receive placement and no credit. The maximum amount of credit students may receive for any combination of AP or IB examinations is the equivalent of four (4) CMC courses. Students cannot receive credit for more than one course or examination covering the same subject matter and students lose credit for an AP or IB course if they repeat the same or a lower-level course. CMC does not grant credit for exams in subjects not offered at the College. Official copies of AP score reports or IB transcripts must be received by the CMC registrar no later than the first semester of the junior year to be considered for credit or placement.
