Student Records :: Advanced Standing Credit

Advanced Placement (AP)

Many area high schools offer Advanced Placement (AP) or honors courses to their students giving them the opportunity to complete college-level work while attending high school. A minimum AP score of 3 is required for credit at Virginia Western. An official copy of the AP transcript must be submitted to the VWCC Records Office in order to obtain credit. Unofficial, student copies, or high school transcripts noting the AP credit will not be accepted for credit. It is your responsibility to determine scores necessary to transfer to 4-year colleges or universities.
