Whereas, Both the California State University (CSU) and the University of California (UC) have had systemwide minimum semester credit policies on the granting of units for Advanced Placement (AP) credit for admission purposes, which facilitates transfer by providing consistency for students on how to use external exam credit towards admission criteria;

Whereas, the UC continues to have a systemwide policy for the granting of units for AP credit for admission purposes;

Whereas, The CSU Coded Memorandum ASA-2018-06 Systemwide Credit for External Examination [1] dated April 11, 2018 has removed CSU’s system-wide policies on the granting of units for AP credit for admission purposes; and

Whereas, Without a CSU systemwide minimum semester credit policy for AP credit for admissions purpose, students who apply to multiple CSU campuses with AP credit may meet the 60 units required for admission at some CSUs but not at others;

Resolved, That Academic Senate for California Community Colleges work with the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office, the Academic Senate of the California State University, and the California State University Office of the Chancellor, as appropriate, to reinstate the systemwide policies on the granting of units for AP credit for admissions purposes.
