Advance Placement Exam Information

Blinn College will accept hours for credit by examination earned through the College Board Advanced Placement Program (AP) Examination. The Blinn College Office of Admissions and Records evaluates AP as transfer credit. A grade of "CR" will be posted to the transcript. There is no charge for this service.

Conditions for AP Examinations

  1. Credit, up to 12 hours, will be granted only if the student completes 6 semester hours at Blinn College and earns a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0. Students must present evidence of completion with acceptable scores of AP exams along with a completed application for credit. The request for credit may be made at any time while the student attends Blinn College but will not be granted if the student has attempted, is enrolled in or has completed the course for which credit is being sought.
  2. Credit earned by examination may not be used to meet the minimum residence requirement for the Blinn College degree or certificate awarded at graduation.
  3. Students should understand that each college and university has its own policy with respect to credit earned by examination and that any such credit allowed by one institution may not necessarily be accepted by another.
