What is AP?

  • Advanced Placement (AP) is a program established by College Board, the makers of the SAT. This program brings intro-level college courses into high schools across the nation. These classes can earn you college credit depending on what college or university you attend after high school. Grades in AP classes are weighted and calculated using the State’s Uniform Grading Policy that can be found in the Program of Studies.

    ​All AP courses offer a cumulative exam at the end of the year, typically in May. If a college or university accepts AP courses for college credit, they usually require a passing score. AP exams are scored on a scale of 1-5 with anything above a 3 largely considered passing. The minimum passing score will vary between institutions. Here's a list of how AP classes transfer into WVU for example.
