College Credit Programs/AP Courses

    College Credit
    There are several different types of dual enrollment/articulation programs available to Fort Zumwalt high school students. Through these programs high school students can earn college credit by taking advanced high school courses and dually enrolling in the college's reciprocal course. The Coordinating Board of High Education (CBHE) requires the following for students participating in these programs:
        1. Must be a Junior or Senior
        2. Must have a GPA of 3.0
        3. No grade lower than a C is accepted for college credit
    Actual courses available for college credit change annually based upon approval of courses by the college and student enrollment.
    Parents and students are advised that a college may not accept college credit earned through any of these programs. It is the responsibility of the student/parent to check with the college that they are planning to attend to see if the college will accept college credit obtained through these advanced credit programs.

    AP Course Offerings
    The following information was taken from the College Board website:
    AP courses (see offerings below) are taught by highly qualified high school teachers who use the AP Course Descriptions to guide them. The Course Description for each discipline outlines the course content, describes the curricular goals of the subject, and provides sample examination questions. In May, AP Examinations are administered and represent the culmination of college-level work in a given discipline in a secondary school setting. Rigorously developed by committees of college and AP high school faculty, the AP Exams test students' ability to perform at a college level. Each exam contains a free-response section (either essay or problem solving) and a section of multiple-choice questions. Testing fees are payable before the exam. Students who perform well can receive course credit and/or advanced standing at thousands of universities worldwide.
