AP, IB, and CLEP

Advanced Placement (AP) score(s)

AP Chart (PDF)

Students at Sacramento City College may be awarded units of credit for each Advanced Placement examination (CEEB) they pass with a score of 3, 4, or 5.

Students will receive units/credits but not letter grades for these courses, and they will not be used in the computation of cumulative grade point average for graduation or transfer. After successful completion of 12 units at SCC, a student in good standing may submit their official CEEB Advanced Placement Test scores to the Admissions and Records Office for evaluation.

For transferring students, AP examination information is listed as it applies to meeting CSU General Education-Breadth or IGETC requirements. Students should check with their transfer institution about policies for using AP scores for admissions and/or their major. Students who have earned credit from an AP exam should NOT take a comparable college course because transfer credit will not be granted for both.

International Baccalaureate (IB)

No credit will be granted for lower level course work completed in the IB program. Students who have earned credit from an IB exam should not take a comparable college course because transfer credit will not be granted for both.
