Advanced Placement Program (AP)

If you're a high school student, you may be able to take courses through an AP (Advanced Placement Program) standing and get college credit for the courses. Subjects range from art to U.S. history. For details about this opportunity, see your high school guidance office.

A student may take Advanced Placement Examinations administered in the high schools. Below you will find a listing of the AP exam titles. In order for MCC to accept AP credit, a student must receive a 5, 4 or 3 on the exam and request the results be sent from the national AP office directly to MCC. Visit the website for the Advanced Placement Program for more information.
