The application of Advanced Placement (AP), College-level Proficiency Examination (CLEP), and International Baccalaureate (IB) program credits to the Arizona General Education Curriculum is determined by the Arizona public community or tribal college certifying the AGEC.
A grade of “Passing (P)” is not applicable to the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) except when awarded for Advanced Placement (AP), College-Level Proficiency Examination (CLEP), and International Baccalaureate (IB) credit.
“AP, CLEP and IB proposal – the GEATF proposal was modified to a recommendation that all community colleges update their catalogs to reflect that a “P” grade is equivalent to a “C” or higher grade.”
There is a general policy, established by the Transfer Articulation Task Force (TATF) that “all credits [within an AGEC, Pathway, or Transfer Associate’s Degree] are accepted and applied toward the university degree or degrees for which the AGEC articulates whether the credit was awarded for course completion, assessment of prior learning, or via some other nontraditional learning mode.” However, no specific policy has been developed regarding the application of other assessments (i.e. DANTES) to the AGEC.
