AP, CLEP, and DANTES Exams

Students who satisfactorily complete AP, CLEP, or DANTES exams may request articulated credits by following these steps:

  1. Apply to the college.
  2. Provide official transcripts of your exam scores to RACC. Transcripts may be mailed, hand delivered, or sent via a recognized electronic transcript system. Mailed and hand delivered transcripts must be in a sealed envelope with an undisturbed signature over the seal. Electronic transcripts should be directed to ahehn@racc.edu.
  3. Review your program evaluation in WebAdvisor for complete information about how your credits have been articulated and how these credits apply to your program at RACC. You will receive notice in the mail once your credits have been evaluated.

RACC will generally award students articulated credit for AP exams passed with a 3 or higher. For AP exams not listed on this chart, elective credits will be awarded.
