Frequently Asked Questions

How does concurrent credit differ from AP courses?
  • Students enrolled in high school Advanced Placement (AP) courses have the option of taking an AP exam. Credits are awarded by the university they attend, based on their test score.

  • Concurrent credit students earn the number of credits for which they enrolled, and the grade earned is the grade for the course, not the grade for one particular test.
