AP

Advanced Placement (AP) classes are available at Campo Verde High School. AP classes require the type of high-level calculating and critical thinking that students will encounter in their first year of college. AP courses prepare students to take the national Advanced Placement examination given in the late spring of each school year. For more information about the AP program, visit www.collegeboard.org and click on “AP.” The cost for each AP Exam in 2018 is $98. Students may qualify for a reduction in price based on certain requirements.

***NEW: REGISTRATION WILL TAKE PLACE ONLINE THIS YEAR*** (This process will allow parents and students to register at any point of the day in the registration window and pay with a debit or credit card. In the past, registration has been through the bookstore which only has certain hours and students had to pay with cash or check. In addition, using Total Registration will streamline the process for test ordering, pre-administration sessions, and test delivery.)

Here are some other bits of information regarding the AP process:

  • --Once tests have been ordered there will be a pre-administration session so all participants will have census info pre-bubbled

  • --If you are still unsure if your student should take the AP exam, communicate with the teacher for insight into your student’s progress and practice tests scores

  • --Registered students will be reminded of test dates and made aware of start times and locations by the end of April

  • --Students must bring their own materials (calculators, pens, pencils) to the test session

  • --Scores will be available to students online at apscore.org in July

Advanced Placement is unlike dual enrollment in that students must take the AP exam offered in May, and earn a qualifying score for the college or university they are planning to attend, in order to receive any college credits for their efforts.

AP vs. Dual Enrollment


Dual Credit

Advanced Placement

Description

Dual Credit allows high school students to potentially earn both high school and college credit by completing courses at their high school.

The AP Program allows students to take college-level courses and exams, and to potentially earn college credit or placement while still in high school.

Transferability

All in-state and several other public institutions; may not be accepted by selective out of state universities.

Accepted by most institutions, public and private, both in and out-of-state. Very few exceptions.

How Transferred

Through a CGCC transcript.

As a score (1 through 5) with 5 and 4 being most readily accepted, 3 may be accepted and 2 and 1 are not accepted.

Teacher

Taught by high school teachers who serves as adjunct professors.

Taught by high schools teachers trained by the College Board.

How Grade or Score is Assigned

Dual Credit grade is the same grade as high school grade. Grade is not weighted.

Student will receive a high school grade, but transferability is based on a single, national exam administered in May. Class grade has nothing to do with test score. Class grade is weighted.

Cost

$86/credit hour plus a $15 registration fee per semester.

$98.00 per exam
