Advanced Placement (AP) Exams

Texarkana College will award college credit in subject-appropriate areas according to the chart below. Students must supply evidence of completion. A grade of “CR” is posted on a transcript. All AP students must show proof of meeting the applicable TSI requirements. There is no charge for transcription of AP credit.

A student must have completed six semester hours of credit at Texarkana College and have successful completion of a course within the last 12 months to have Advanced Placement credit applied to their record.
