Other AP courses may be available through Online Providers
AP exams will automatically be offered for the above listed AP courses. Additional AP exams may be offered if requested during the AP exam sign-up window. Registration materials for AP exams will be handed out to students in AP courses during class time. They can also be found in the counseling office during the registration period. The registration period is typically held in the beginning of February. The 2018 cost of each AP exam is $102.00 and is paid when registering for the exam. Students who qualify for the federal free or reduced lunch program may receive AP exams for reduced cost. Please see Mrs. Wilson in counseling for more information about qualifying for reduced cost AP exams.
The AP Examinations are administered each year in May and represent the culmination of college-level work in a given discipline in a secondary school setting. Rigorously developed by committees of college and AP high school faculty, the AP Exams test students' ability to perform at a college level.
With qualifying AP Exam scores, you can earn credit, advanced placement or both at the majority of colleges and universities in the United States and Canada. Individual colleges and universities, not the College Board or the AP Program, grant course credit and placement. You should obtain a college’s AP policy in writing. You can usually find this information directly through the institution or by using the College Board AP Credit Search.
Your AP Exam score is a weighted combination of your scores on the multiple-choice section and on the free-response section. Although colleges and universities are responsible for setting their own credit and placement policies, AP scores signify how qualified students are to receive college credit and placement. The final score is reported on a 5-point scale:
5 = extremely well qualified
4 = well qualified
3 = qualified
2 = possibly qualified
1 = no recommendation
The AP Program conducts studies in all AP subjects to compare the performance of AP students with that of college students in comparable college courses. These studies help set the “cut points” that determine how AP students’ composite scores are translated into an AP score of 1 to 5. AP Exam scores of 5 are equivalent to grades of A in the corresponding college course. AP Exam scores of 4 are equivalent to grades of A-, B+ and B in college. AP Exam scores of 3 are equivalent to grades of B-, C+ and C in college.
AP Score Reports are sent in July to the college or university you designated on your answer sheet, to you, and to your high school. Each report is cumulative and includes scores for all the AP Exams you have ever taken, unless you have requested that one or more scores be withheld from a college or canceled. To order additional score reports or to withhold scores from being reported, use the College Board AP Score Reporting Services.
