The West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission (HEPC) and the West Virginia Council for Community and Technical College Education (CCTCE) are committed to initiatives such as the Advanced Placement program of the College Board which encourage prospective college students to aspire to higher intellectual achievements. The commission and council recognize the Advanced Placement program as one which will allow high school students to master college subject matter and to document their intellectual achievements through successful completion of Advanced Placement examinations.
Beginning with the 1994-95 academic year, the State College and University Systems, and subsequently the HEPC and CCTCE, have implemented a policy which will enable students who have successfully completed any Advanced Placement exams to receive academic credit at all public undergraduate institutions in West Virginia. Among the provisions of the policy are:
Listings of awards of Advanced Placement credit for each of the state higher education institutions are on the drop down menu below. Minimum scores, number of credits awarded, and available course equivalents are indicated. If the institution does not have an equivalent course, then no course is indicated in the course equivalent column. Credit is awarded, however, for successful completion of any College Board Advanced Placement examination. Credits are awarded once an official score report is received and the student is enrolled in the receiving institution.
To which college or university do you want to transfer AP credits:
Any questions on Advanced Placement credits should be directed to the institution or to:
