AP Credit & Summer Courses

Can I still get credit for AP exams if I didn’t turn them in before I came?

Yes, you can still receive credits for AP exams on which you received a score of 4 or 5. These credits can only increase the total number of credits you have, but no AP test can take the place of an actual course on campus. For example, you can get 4 credits toward the 128 required for graduation for taking a US History AP test, but you cannot use those 4 credits to fulfill any requirements of the history major, nor could they fulfill any specific graduation requirement like the Humanities distribution requirement, the Multicultural Perspectives requirement, the Language requirement or the First-Year Seminar requirement. To receive credit, have your scores sent directly from ETS to our Registrar’s office.

Can I get credit for taking a summer course?

Yes! You can earn up to 12 credits during the summers that you are a matriculated student at MHC. If you began your time here in the spring, you may be eligible to take an additional 8 credits. More information about Transfer & Advance Placement Credit can be found through the Office of the Registrar.

Can I get credit for a summer internship?

Not directly, but you should consult the Career Development Center for more information on internships and how to seek credit related to them.
