OLYMPIA – Washington’s public colleges and universities will have to come up with a uniform policy on awarding credit to students who pass Advanced Placement tests in high school.

Under current law, each institution can set its own requirements for awarding credit, and some require higher scores than others. A law that will take effect this summer will require all schools to award college credit toward graduation for a minimum score of 3 on an AP test.

“If you do the work, you ought to get the credit,” Gov. Jay Inslee said when signing the bill.
