Advanced Placement Credit

Advanced Placement Credit (AP)

The Advanced Placement Program is a cooperative educational endeavor between secondary schools and colleges and universities. The program provides motivated high school students with the opportunity to take college-level courses in a high school setting. Students who participate in the program not only gain college-level skills, but in many cases they also earn college credit while they are still in high school.

Green River grants credit in a variety of subject areas for students who have obtained a particular score on their College Board Advanced Placement examinations. These exams are given by the Educational Testing Service at locations around the country.  Students must submit an official copy of AP scores. Upon evaluation of those scores, the student will be notified by email of acceptible credits. Credit is posted to the student's transcript at the time of graduation only.

Below is a list of AP tests with consideration for college credit. Grades range from a high of five to a low of one; in most departments, credit and/or placement is awarded for grades of three or higher. In some cases, the student must consult the appropriate department advisor.

Additional Mathematics Note:

The Mathematics Division can award Advanced Placement credits. If students are placed by the Mathematics Division at a level higher than the College Board Placement, they may receive additional credits. If students have not taken the AP Calculus test, but have done college-level work in high school and are placed by the Mathematics Division into either Math& 152 or Math& 153, they may receive additional credits.

Note: When numbers 900 or above are assigned, it indicates that there is no specific Green River course equivalent for all or part of that exam. Credit is awarded by category rather than course specific.

If a student’s first mathematics course is Math& 152, they will earn credit for Math& 151. If a student’s first mathematics course is Math& 153, they will earn credit for both Math& 151 and 152. Students may apply through the Mathematics Division and receive Mathematics Division Advanced Placement credits by challenging the course and paying the appropriate fees.
