Advanced Placement (AP) Program, CLEP
This is the Advanced Placement (AP) Program and is available through the students high school. This enables a high school student to earn credit toward college in a variety of subjects. Academic Credit by Examination The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is available through many high schools and enables a high school student to earn credit toward college in a variety of subjects. Usually these courses are equivalent to college freshmen/sophomore-level courses such as American Government, American History, Composition, and so forth. College credit will be awarded based on standardized exams administered at the high schools in mid to late May. High school students who earn AP exam scores of 3 or higher (on a scale of 1-5) on most exams and who submit official score reports to Georgia Highlands 's Admissions Office will automatically receive credit for coursework. Scores of 4 or higher are required to receive credit for history exams.
The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is offered at Georgia Highlands by appointment and allows persons to earn college credit by achieving appropriate cutoff scores on nationally standardized exams. Exams available cover a range of courses including math, history, government, literature, and sciences. Test registration information is available through the Testing Office. http://www.highlands.edu/site/assessment-center As with AP testing, CLEP is a great way to earn college credit. Not only will a person save time by not having to take a course containing material he or she already knows, but the student will also save money by not having to pay for a college class. Thus, CLEP enables a student to move through his or her freshman and sophomore years at a faster pace.
Departmental Exams. A few of the academic departments at Georgia Highlands also offer the opportunity for credit by examination. The English Department, for example, allows persons who feel confident about their writing skills to write an essay evaluated by a departmental committee. If a passing credential is earned, the person will be allowed to exempt English 1101 and/or 1102, depending on the score. The Department of Foreign Languages and Literature also allows students to exempt certain introductory foreign language courses. To receive credit by examination, the student must pay a fee of $6/credit hour fee. Test dates vary, so interested persons should contact the departments (English 678-839-6512 or Foreign Language 678-839-6515) for details.
Amount of hours transferred
Students can look at their Advising Transcript through SCORE located on the main web page. Students will be able to view not only their transfer evaluation, but other important information regarding their academic history.
AP Test Results
Students who do not earn a minimum semester grade point average of 2.0 while on Academic Probation regardless of the cumulative GPA will be suspended for one semester. Readmission on probation will be automatically allowed after one semester of suspension. Students on probation who do not make satisfactory progress after returning from an initial suspension will again be suspended, this time for one calendar year. An appeal is possible only if plausible evidence is provided that an error has been made or that a course grade was unjustly assigned. A student who is suspended for the second time may apply for readmission on probation one calendar year from the date of suspension. For further information, contact the Registrars Office at 706-295-6339.

Drop vs Withdrawal
Drops can only occur during the drop/add period for each semester. Late drops are possible after this deadline with special permission from the professor and department. When a student drops a class the class is completely removed from a student's record. It is as if the class was never registered for. Students will receive a refund for classes dropped during the drop/add period. Withdraws - Students who wish to withdraw from a course after drop/add may withdraw on SCORE. There is no refund for withdrawing from a course on your schedule. Before the mid-point of a term, a withdrawal equals a grade of W and will not affect your GPA. After the mid-point and withdrawal deadline of a term, a withdrawal equals a grade of WF and will count the same as an F in your GPA.

SCORE - Link Will Not Open
SCORE opens as a pop-up window, so make sure your pop-up blocker is off or is set to allow SCORE to open.
SCORECARD (Degree Works)
SCORECARD (Degree Works) tracks degree progress, prepares for registration, and plans for graduation. This degree audit system combines GHC’s degree requirements and students' completed coursework in a user friendly worksheet. In addition, it maintains a record of advisement notes and schedules.
SCOREcard - @ Symbol on Degree Audit
This is a wild card in SCORE and indicates a variety of courses which can fulfill the area. The 12 hours in PSYC 3@ or 4@ means any upper level (3000 or 4000) course can be taken to fulfill the requirement. CPCs, (College Preparatory Courses), will also have the wildcard sign, as these courses do not represent academic credit and will be placed in courses not used.
SCOREcard - Course Cannot Be Applied to Degree
Some students may have courses at the bottom of their degree audit with the heading “Cannot be Applied to Degree”. These are courses which will not count in any area of the degree and can include grades of F (fail) or W (withdraw), remedial courses or transfer credits which do not apply at GHC.
SCOREcard - Courses Not in Correct Areas
SCOREcard uses a priority system for assembling courses into areas. Often, courses may satisfy multiple requirements and SCOREcard will use the best fit according to the hierarchy programmed. When a new course that will also satisfy this requirements is taken SCOREcard will make adjustments to where courses are used. If you have registered for your last term and your degree audit needs adjustments, you should meet with your academic advisor, as they will be able to begin the substitution/adjustment process by submitting a petition on SCORE. In addition, courses taken during the current semester that have already been completed but have not yet rolled into academic history may fall into the elective category as unused. This is due to timing and will correct itself after the term has completed.
SCOREcard - Major Not Correct
If you have not already, you must declare your major/ minor with the appropriate department. If you have already declared and the information is still incorrect, please contact the Registrar’s Office at: https://sites.highlands.edu/registrar/registrar-forms/
SCOREcard - Two Degrees
You may do a what-if audit (left hand menu) for the second program of study. Only one program of study is listed per student but you may do as many what-if scenarios as you would like. If you would like assistance with running audits please contact the academic advisor at your campus.
SCOREcard - What If I Change My Major
You can use the “what-if” tab to do an audit using criteria you select. You can also enter planned courses. If students decide to change their major, they should submit the program of study change form to their campus office http://www.highlands.edu/site/registrar-forms.
Study abroad information may be found at https://sites.highlands.edu/study-abroad/.
TAP Student Registration
A TAP student is an employee university or another university and is eligible to register prior to the Final Registration phase ONLY. TAP participants are also allowed to register during the drop-add/late registration period. How do I register if I wish to enroll in more than nine academic semester credit hours during a specific academic semester? One may register for academic semester credit hours in excess of nine during his/her regular student registration assigned time period. One may then register for a TAP course(s) during employee registration - designated fees and tuition will be waived by the end of late registration. The remaining balance should appear after the waiver of nine credit hours. Do I need to fill out a TAP application for every semester? Yes. Please be informed, however, that one application will suffice for both the Maymester and the Summer sessions. What happens if I drop a course after the late registration period ends? One would be ineligible for TAP for one semester. Can I receive more than one degree under TAP? Yes. Are graduate degrees eligible under TAP? Yes, except for professional programs as indicated in the TAP policy. Why is there a separate registration period for USG employees? Eligible USG employees may participate in TAP on a space-available basis, only. Therefore, the employee registration period follows the regular registration period. Is the application fee waived under TAP? No. A list of TAP student names is submitted by Human Resources to the Registrar’s Office prior to time ticket assignments.
