The AP Program is administered by the College Board. Advanced Placement Exams are developed by the Educational Testing Service.
In the spring of each school year, a cumulative exam is administered for each AP course. AP Exams are graded on a scale of one (minimum) to five (maximum). The cost for each exam (approximately $90) is paid for by the student. University credit is generally granted for exam scores of three and above, with five being the highest score.
AP courses receive a weighted factor of .050 per semester. Based upon students’ AP Exam scores, they may earn as many as 18 semester hours of college/university credit. This represents a significant financial savings to the parents of these students.
