Tidewater Community College may grant credit for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) comprising levels Advanced (A) and Advanced Subsidiary (AS) offered through the University of Cambridge in England. These courses and examinations are administered through registered CIE Centers in public high schools throughout the United States.
Cambridge tests passed with final grades of A, B or C will, depending on the test, be considered for advanced standing and credit for the corresponding courses at TCC if the credit is applicable to the student's program of study.
Credits accepted are counted as credits earned toward the degree, but are not used in the computation of the student's GPA. The chart below provides information about the TCC equivalent for various Cambridge examinations.
