Advanced Placement

Students who have completed Advanced Placement (AP) Examinations of the College Entrance Examination Board with scores of 3, 4, or 5 may receive credit at Santa Barbara City College for each advanced placement course as listed and published in the Advanced Placement Chart. See AP 4236 for additional details.

Contact an academic counselor for more information on how your AP scores may be applied toward your academic goals at SBCC.

To submit your AP scores:

Option A: Download a PDF copy of your "Student Score Report" from College Board and submit your scores online using ShareFile (Click here for instructions). See example below.

Option B: Download a PDF copy of your "Student Score Report" from College Board (see image above) and drop off your report at  Admissions and Records in the Student Services building. 3/16/20 Update: Do not attempt to drop off your AP Score Report during the campus closure. Send your report to us using Option A.

Option C: Have College Board mail your scores to SBCC (fees may apply). See the College Board website for instructions. 3/27/20 update: If your scores are mailed to SBCC there will be a delay in processing due to the campus closure. We recommend you use Option A instead.

After we receive your AP scores:

Once we receive your AP Score Report it will be processed within ten (10) business days. This time frame excludes weekends, holidays, and campus closures and is subject to change without notification. Once your scores are processed you may view them in Degree Works under "Test Scores." 

You may also see some scores displayed in your degree audit in Degree Works. However, at this time not all scores may display in this area, so check the the Advanced Placement Chart to see how credit is awarded for AP scores and contact an academic counselor if you have questions.
