The Kentucky Council on Postsecondary Education has approved a policy guaranteeing college credit at the state’s public four-year universities.

The policy also applies to two-year community and technical colleges to students earning qualifying scores through the College Board’s Advanced Placement Program and College-Level Examination Program exams.

This policy, which was approved in April and goes into effect this fall, is designed to help students reduce college costs while also increasing the number of students graduating on time.

Recent high school graduates as well as returning and current college students can take advantage of this new opportunity. To earn college credit through this new policy, high school students need to achieve a qualifying score of 3 or higher on an AP Exam. 

Students of all ages need to earn a qualifying score of 50 or higher on a CLEP exam. The credit-granting policy was established by a statewide team of Kentucky’s leading college faculty and administrative leaders.
