AP Classes / Testing

Our #1 piece of advice to students and parents is...

 

1. Write down your Collegeboard username and password and keep it in a location that you can find. You will need your Collegeboard account to look up AP scores and SAT scores.

We do not have access to your Collegeboard account, only you do. Try using the Forgot username/password feature on their website.

 

If you just want to know what your scores are, please see LHS Registrar.

 

What College Credit will I get for AP Test scores?

Each college and university makes its own decisions about awarding credit and placement. Most have a written policy spelling out things like the minimum required score to earn credit for a given AP Exam, the amount of credit awarded and how credits are applied. Generally speaking, students who pass the exams with a score of 3 or better may receive college credit. Find your preferred college/university with AP credit policy information:

Overview

The AP® Program, administered by The College Board, has two basic parts: (1) coursework and (2) the examinations.  Advanced Placement courses are set up in high schools and taught by members of the faculty. Advanced Placement exams are created by The College Board and submitted to schools nationwide for student testing. Research by The College Board has shown students who take AP classes earn above average grades in college and are more likely to graduate with honors than non-AP students.  Ninety percent of the AP students consider their advanced courses the most valuable of all their high school classes.  For further information about the Advanced Placement program, please visit:

Students in AP classes have the option to take the yearly AP examinations offered by The College Board. Students may take the AP exams even if they did not enroll in AP courses. There is a cost to the student for each AP exam. In 2016 the cost is $59 per exam. Cost is subject to change based on state funding. Students may also pay for exams by doing peer tutoring. Students must register for exams in February through the counseling department.
