Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations
Students who have taken the Advanced Placement Examination (AP) will need to submit a copy of their scores to the Registrar’s office. AP Exams are available for art, English, history and social science, math and computer science, sciences, capstone, and world languages and culture courses taken through AP.
To request a copy of your AP scores go to the College Board’s AP website https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/home
AP scores transfer to Great Falls College MSU by the following criteria:
- The Registrar’s office will only transfer in AP credits applicable to the student’s degree.
- Grades of 3, 4 or 5 on an AP examination will be granted for college credit for the appropriate courses.
- Some programs at GFC MSU limit the use of pass/fail courses in their curriculum.
There is a 25% PLA cap from the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities
(NWCCU) on the number of PLA credits that may be used for a student’s degree. Refer
to NWCCU’s policy 2.C.7
