Advanced Placement Courses
Advanced Placement (AP) courses are offered in all academic disciplines. A student is required to have demonstrated ability and interest in prerequisite courses and have permission of the department, for admission into an AP course. Special attention will be paid to the attitude and academic maturity of prospective students.
Students need to be aware of the demands of an AP course and they must realize that they are commiting themselves to working at the college level. Students enrolling in an AP course are expected to complete the AP curriculum and take the AP exam or equivalent. Students electing not to take the AP exam will be required to take a final exam in the course.
