Advanced Placement (AP) and College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Information for Mathematics

Students may receive college credit for having taken either AP (Advanced Placement) or CLEP (College Level Examination Program) tests.  If the student has received the necessary score for college credit, NVC will grant the student credit for that class, which will allow the student to progress to the next math course in their sequence within their degree plan.


AP Credit-Granting Scores and Semester Hour Recommendations1
