This allows students who successfully complete identified AACPS high school programs, and score a grade of C or higher on the AACC college proficiency assessment to earn college credit at no cost to the student. The grade is recorded on the AACC student academic transcript as proficiency credit. Students may earn no more than 15 academic credits through proficiency assessment(s). Check out other ways students can earn college credit while in high school.
If you are enrolled in a high school program that is eligible for proficiency credit, complete the following steps to request credit:
1. Apply to AACC. You can find additional assistance about the online application process in the drop-down below.
For information or assistance, contact our admissions office at email@example.com or Technical Call Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. For MyAACC help, visit our MyAACC page for assistance.
2. Complete a Request for Proficiency Credit form, print, complete necessary signatures and then give or email the completed form to your program pathway teacher.
3. Earn a grade of C or better on the proficiency assessment.
You may only take the proficiency assessment once. Your AACC college transcript grade will be the same as your proficiency assessment grade. Proficiency grades lower than C will not be reflected on your AACC transcript.
