What is Advanced Placement (AP)?

Courses classified as Advanced Placement are nationally accredited, high rigor, college level courses created and regulated by the National College Board.

Who Can take AP courses?

AP courses are for any student who is academically prepared and motivated to take on college-level courses. There are no specific requirements to participate in these courses, however students are advised to be prepared for a challenge.

AP Credit:

  • After completing an AP course students have the opportunity to take the AP exam. Students must earn a certain score on the exam to be considered for college credit or advanced placement.
  • Each college and university (not the College Board or the AP Program) makes its own decisions about awarding credit and placement.
  • To receive credit, Students must request that the College Board send your official AP score report to the college of your choice, either at the time of testing or afterward through a score report request.
  • If you have questions about the status of your AP credit or placement, you should contact your college.
