Rochester Community Schools Advanced Placement Program

What Can Advanced Placement Do for You?

Rochester Schools offers a myriad of Advanced Placement courses. By taking an AP class and scoring well on the AP exam, students can potentially earn college credits as early as their sophomore year of high school. When considering taking an AP course, students must be sure they meet the prerequisite requirements for the course as outlined in the Course Description Book. They should also consult with teachers and counselors.

Each college and university has unique requirements for earning credits based on students’ AP scores for each AP exam they take. The following table https://apscore.collegeboard.org/creditandplacement/search-credit-policies focuses on credits that can be earned at colleges and universities around the country. If students earn scores of 3, 4, or 5 on the AP exam for a particular subject area, they might be eligible for college credit.

It is important to note that this information is meant as a guide, and it is imperative that students and parents check with universities to ensure that information has not changed. Specific colleges and areas of study within universities often have specific requirements that fall outside of general guidelines. Checking with universities is a MUST!

To register for an AP course, speak with your AP teacher.
