Anne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) and Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) have partnered to align high school coursework with AACC college courses.

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.

Apply for Proficiency Credit

If you are enrolled in a high school program that is eligible for proficiency credit, your high school instructor should walk you through the following steps to request credit:

  1. Apply to AACC.
  2. Complete a Request for Proficiency Credit Assessment and return to your high school teacher for signature.
  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.


We’re happy to help.
