The Advanced Placement (AP) Program offers college-level courses and exams that you can take in high school.

Taking AP courses and exams in high school could give you an advantage in college by letting you:

  • Earn college credits before you even set foot on campus. In fact, most AP students who enroll in college start school with some credit.
  • Earning credit or placement can open-up time on your schedule or even let you graduate early.
  • “AP” on your high school transcript shows colleges you're motivated to succeed, and taking the exam demonstrates your commitment to tackle and complete college-level work.
  • Earning college credit with AP can give you the flexibility to change majors, pursue a second degree, study abroad, or seek internships.

The Advanced Placement tests are administered in May to high school students in their junior or senior year. Official score reports should be forwarded by ETS (Educational Testing Service) to:

Johnson County Community College
Records Office
Box 41
12345 College Blvd.
Overland Park, KS 66210

To request a copy of your score report, visit the College Board's AP page.

Once received, the Records Office will keep your AP scores on file. To have those scores converted to JCCC course credit, please email the JCCC Records Office at or call 913-469-8500, ext. 2436.

Note: JCCC course credit is not awarded for AP scores unless a student initiates this request.
