    Frequently Asked Questions – AP Exams


    Am I required to take an AP exam?

    Taking an AP exam is optional but recommended so that you can earn college credit.


    Will exams be online or in person/on paper this year?

    Right now, the plan is for AP exams to be in person. That may change depending on COVID rates and school reopening plans.


    How do I know if I will be able to earn college credit?

    Each college determines its AP credit policy. For many colleges, a score of 3 or higher on the AP exam will give students credit for an equivalent college course. You may search a college’s AP credit policy here  - https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/getting-credit-placement/search-policies


    My class also has the option for dual credit. Should I do both dual credit and AP? What’s the difference?

     The following AP courses at HRVHS give students the option for dual credit and/or to take the AP exam: AP Literature (ENG 104/105/106), AP Language (WR 121/122), AP US History (HST 201/202/203), AP Statistics (MTH 243). In most cases, we recommend opting for dual credit over AP because (1) dual credit is based on successful completion in the class versus performance on a one-time test and (2) credit transfers easily to Oregon and most out of state colleges. However, some selective and/or private colleges prefer AP credit to dual credit – please review the policies of the colleges you are interested in or contact your counselor for more information.

    AP classes are taught according to a nationally approved college level curriculum. College credit can be earned through qualifying scores on AP exams. Each college sets their own policy for how they award credit for AP credit. You can find these policies here: https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/getting-credit-placement/search-policies

    Dual credit classes are offered in partnership with CGCC. Students earn both high school and college credit upon successful completion of the course. Registration and a fee are required through CGCC – your dual credit teacher will share information about how to register.
