AP Exams

(High School Courses/Exams)

As a high school student, AP coursework and exams can change your life. Through AP Exams, you have the opportunity to earn college credit for coursework taken in high school. You can obtain credit for exams with scores of three (3) or higher. You will receive exemption credit which indicates course completion.

If you graduated from high school without having taken AP courses and exams, you may want to consider CLEP as an option to earn Advanced Placement.

Exemption and Credit:

A student who places into a course above 101 and makes a grade of C or better will receive exemption credit for the course(s) below the one for which the grade was given.

However, a student who exempts all courses cannot receive any credit, since we have no way of validating the student's knowledge. That student may take the CLEP for credit if desired.

NOTE: Students who successfully complete a course above 101 with a grade of C or better must contact the Humanities Department in order to have this credit awarded. The exemption is not automatic, but can be done quickly once the department is notified.

If a student who exempts all the courses offered at MTC for the particular foreign language elects not to take the CLEP exam, then the student should contact the college to which he or she plans to transfer to determine which course to enroll in at that college.

Mandatory Prerequisites:

  • Students must abide by the results of the test, and may not take a class either lower or higher than the one into which they place.
  • Instructor assessment of a student's work in the first week of class may be used for re-determining placement in another level.
  • Students must have the required prerequisite class or score to be permitted to enroll in a foreign language course at any level.
