You cannot take the second exam unless you passed the first day's exam. (The Dept. will review thru August how that info will be dispersed to students due to Covid-19.) The second exam will not be graded unless you passed the first.

You will receive 1 unit of AP credit if you pass the first exam. If you pass both exams you will receive 2 units of AP credit

The credit exams are pass/fail, if you pass (getting 85% or more correct), just the AP credit will show up on your transcript. It doesn't affect your gpa. If you fail, you can take the credit exam again the next semester that it is given.  Failed AP attempts will not appear on your trancripts.  Our placement exams are given during the Fall and Spring semesters only.

Incoming first-year students MUST take the online Canvas Diagnostic Exam during the Advanced Registration period and report their scores to their academic advisor. In addition to the Diagnostic Exam, first-year students may also take our Credit By Exam(s) .
