AP Update!

Beginning in fall 2014, AP Physics B will be replaced by two new courses—Physics 1: Algebra-Based, and Physics 2. For more information please click here.

Advanced Placement (AP)

Advanced Placement (AP) exams are taken after students complete the corresponding Advanced Placement course in high school. Advanced Placement courses are challenging, college-level courses that are designed to parallel typical lower-level undergraduate courses. Exams are developed by committees of college and secondary faculty, and are given to test groups of students in actual college courses to determine appropriate passing scores. Institutions must use the course number listed, unless it would be advantageous for the student to award a specific course number with equal credit that satisfies program prerequisites.

More information about Advanced Placement, including descriptions of courses and sample examination questions, is available at

NOTICE: The College Board no longer offers AP Latin Vergil. The May 2012 exam was the last administration for this course.

Miami Dade College uses the minimum scores, credits, and guidelines for awarding credit for exams established by the State of Florida's Articulation Coordinating Committee (ACC). For additional information please visit the Florida Virtual Campus website and click on Credit-by-Exam Equivalencies (PDF).

All exams for Credit-by-Exam are processed as transcripts. Below is the College’s contact information for processing transcripts.
