3.15 Advanced Placement

It is the policy of Minnesota West Community & Technical College to award college credit to students who attend Minnesota West Community & Technical College and have achieved a grade of 3, 4, or 5 on the Advanced Placement (AP) examination(s). Credit may be given for a specific college course if a test covers substantially similar material. If the test material does not match an existing course, students may be given elective credits.  Students are provided information on AP examination policies and procedures in the college catalog and on the college website. The college policy and procedure for Advanced can be found at

Advanced Placement equivalency charts are available at Transferology to assist students in their educational planning. There is no limit to the total number of credits a student may earn through AP examinations. Credits earned through AP examinations are not resident credits and may not be used to satisfy resident credit requirements for graduation.
