Advanced Placement Program

Many prospective Jackson College students take Advanced Placement (AP) examinations through the College Board during their junior and/or senior year in high school. On many AP examinations, scores of 4 or better will earn academic credit; in a few cases, a score of 3 may result in credit. AP credit may be reassessed by your transfer institution when you transfer.

To receive credit for your AP exams/scores requires that your exams and scores appear on an official high school transcript or that you submit an official AP Score Sheet. Please have the official AP Score Sheet sent to:

JC Office of the Registrar
Jackson College
2111 Emmons Road
Jackson, MI 49201
