Advanced Placement

What are AP courses and exams?

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are rigorous academic programs that may permit a student to enter college with advanced standing. These year-long classes allow students to study a subject area at the college level.  Advanced college standing is awarded based upon the results of the AP exams.  Each college and university has their own standards for AP acceptance, students should review the policies of the post-secondary institutions they might attend prior to registering for an AP class.

When are AP exams scheduled?

Exams are scheduled annually during the middle two weeks of May. Each exam lasts three hour and is administered from 8-11 a.m. or 12-3 p.m.
