AACC has partnered with AACPS to identify high school programs aligned with our college course(s). If you are an AACPS student who successfully completes one or more of these programs, you can take the AACC college proficiency assessment right in your high school at no cost. Pass the proficiency assessment with a grade of C or better and your assessment score will be the grade for the AACC course on your college transcript. Grades below a C will not be reflected on your AACC transcript.
For more information on proficiency credit opportunities, contact Sara Eger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
AACC and AACPS have also partnered to create opportunities to earn articulated college credit. Legal articulation agreements detail how students enrolled in identified AACPS high school pathways can become eligible to receive free articulated AACC credit. Students must meet all the academic requirements and enrollment guidelines outlined in the articulation agreements and the AACPS High School Program of Study booklet. All tuition and related fees for articulated credits will be waived for those students meeting the requirements.
