Credit for Prior Learning and Experience may be awarded to students satisfactorily passing Advanced Placement exams. The transfer is made as a non-course credit by exam credit from the official AP Exam. AP gives students an opportunity to take college-level courses and exams while still in high school. A good AP grade may indicate that the student would benefit from entering a more advanced course than the usual first-year course or should receive credit for a college course that they have not taken. AP Grades range from 5 to 1: 5-extremely well qualified, 4-well qualified, 3-qualified, 2 and 1- no recommendation. To receive college credit, MATC requires an AP score of three (3) or higher. Please submit an official AP score report to MATC’s Admission Office.
