|AP Credit for MCC Students|
As part of recognizing the Associate in Arts (AA) degree credential, we will accept scores of “3” on Advanced Placement (AP) exams from students whose community colleges have applied such credit towards the hours needed for their AA.
Scores of 3, 4, or 5 on the examinations, may entitle students to at least one course credit. Scores of 1 or 2 are not granted credit. A score of 4 or better on both the microeconomics and macroeconomics exams is required for one course credit in economics.
Each department determines the specific amount of credit to be awarded. Credit will not be granted for both Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate program examinations in the same department.
A Guaranteed Transfer Admission Agreement provides MCC students seamless transfer to earn their bachelor’s degree at Lake Forest College. MCC students will benefit from personalized academic planning from both institutions early in their college career.
