A student must complete all admission requirements and register for resident credit before Advanced Placement credit may be reflected on the student’s transcript. An official score report for Advanced Placement (through College Board) must be on file in the Testing Center at Southern Arkansas University, Magnolia, with a completed application for credit, before credit can be awarded.
A student who earns a scaled score of three or above on a particular Advanced Placement subject examination will be awarded credit for the course for which the Advanced Placement test is to be substituted. The equivalent course name, number, and hours credit will be placed on the student’s transcript. No grade will be assigned.
To have official AP test scores sent to Southern Arkansas University, visit the College Board website at https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/ and be sure to put Southern Arkansas University in for your school to have scores sent to. We MUST have official scores sent directly from the College Board in order to award credit for AP courses.
No more than fifteen (15) semester hours credit toward the associate degree and no more than thirty (30) semester hours credit toward the baccalaureate degree, including CLEP, Advanced Placement (AP), correspondence courses, and Credit by Examination, will be accepted.
