Lower Columbia College Advanced Placement

Lower Columbia College grants credit for completion of the College Board's Advanced Placement (AP) examinations. AP is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges and universities. The program provides motivated high school students the opportunity to take college-level courses in a high school setting. AP courses are taught by high school teachers, following course guidelines developed and published by the College Board. Students who participate in the program gain college-level skills and may also earn college credit. Students interested in transferring to a four-year university should check the requirements of their target school to determine the best way to use their AP exam credits.

Washington state community and technical colleges will grant a minimum unrestricted elective credit for an Advanced Placement (AP) score of 3 or higher. Credit will be awarded on the basis of official AP results, not transcript notation.

Procedure for requesting AP credits:

Send an official copy of your AP Score Report to:

Lower Columbia College
Attn: Credential Evaluator
1600 Maple Street
Longview, WA 98632

Once scores are received and reviewed, an email will be sent to the student's Lower Columbia College student email address regarding the credits to be awarded. AP credits are posted to the transcript at the end of the quarter in which scores are submitted as long as the student is enrolled that quarter.
