Advanced Placement. Students who earn a score of 3.0 or above on the Advanced Placement examinations offered by The College Board, will receive credit for a corresponding course in the GOCC curriculum. Advanced placement is treated as transfer credit, with no additional charge to the student. Credits earned through Advanced Placement may be applied as required or elective credits, depending on the student’s academic program. Up to 47 credits may be earned and applied toward an Associate Degree using Advanced Placement. The transferability of Advanced Placement credits at another college or university is determined by the policies of the receiving institution.
