Advanced Placement (AP)

Advanced Placement exams are taken after students complete the corresponding Advanced Placement course in high school. To qualify for college credit, students must earn an appropriate passing score on the nationally administered exam. Credits will not be awarded for examinations that duplicate course work or other exam credits previously posted to a student’s academic record. Students who wish to receive AP credits should submit official test scores from the College Board to the Registrar’s office.
