  • Credit will be posted on the academic record after the state census day of the student's first semester, either fall or spring.
  • If a student earns AP as well as traditional credit for the same course, the most recent credit earned will be used to meet degree requirements and in GPA calculations (if the most recent is traditional credit earned in residence).
