Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement is a program offered to selected students in area high schools which provides the opportunity to accelerate their educational program by taking, in their senior year of high school, one or more subjects which are taught on a college level and which cover material of a college course.

The College Entrance Examination Board gives Advanced Placement Examinations covering advanced work in May of each year. Information regarding these examinations and dates can be obtained through your high school.

The divisions and departments of Henry Ford College determine what advanced placement courses will receive college credit at HFC, as well as the minimum score required.

Students of Henry Ford College who wish to receive Advanced Placement credits must submit an official copy of the Advanced Placement test scores from the College Entrance Examination Board or send an official copy of the high school transcript which identifies the advanced placement course(s) and test score to the Office of Admissions, Registration and Records at the following address:

Office of Admissions, Registration and Records
Henry Ford College
5101 Evergreen Road
Dearborn, MI 48128

After the official transcript and request forms have been received, the Office of Admissions,
Registration and Records will be:

  1. Responsible for establishing an official student record and recording the Advanced Placement Course(s) on the student’s official Henry Ford College transcript.
  2. Responsible for sending a copy of the transcript to the student that identifies the Advanced Placement credits accepted by HFC.
