Awarding AP/CLEP and IB Credits

Requirements to Award AP, CLEP and IB Credits

  • Official Score Report from CollegeBoard will need to be send to San Antonio College. (CollegeBoard takes 10-14 business days for score reports to be mailed to institutions.)   Official International Baccalaureate (IB) transcripts will need to be on file at San Antonio College.

  • Credit hours earned by examination and/or awarded through non-traditional means will be posted as “CR” on your transcript and will not be included in a student’s GPA computation; however, the semester credit hours are counted for graduation.

    • If withdrawn from course before census, credit by exam may be awarded,
