AP-earned credits will be recorded on the student’s Iowa Western transcript only if they are enrolled and attending IWCC. Because students are not awarded a letter grade, test scores are not used when computing the student’s grade point average. Iowa Western must receive AP score reports directly from the College Board (https://apscore.collegeboard.org/scores).  There will be no charge for tuition or recording AP credits on a student’s transcript.
