Students will have the opportunity to choose whether or not they would like to receive Proficiency Credit for BPA-103 through AACC for their participation in Honors Entrepreneurship at Severna Park High School. In order to obtain these transcripted credits, students must enroll as a student at AACC and earn a score of A, B, or C on the AACC comprehensive assessment. Should students receive an A, B, or C on the assessment the same score will appear as their grade for the class on the AACC transcript. Should a student score lower than a C, the class will not appear on an AACC transcript.
