AP (Advanced Placement) Tests – College Course Equivalents
AP tests are usually given at LCM High School in May. LCMHS offers the following AP tests: Calculus AB, English Language and Composition, English Literature and Composition, Music Theory, Statistics, and U.S. Government and Politics.
Scores on these AP tests determine how many college credits a student may be eligible for. In 2015 the Texas Legislature passed a law (HB 1992) that affects the way that Texas public colleges and universities award credit for AP tests. The intent was to increase access to college credit and improve retention and graduation rates for students across the state by requiring credit for AP scores of 3 or higher.
Find all colleges and universities that offer credit or placement for AP scores. Check each college or university's website for their current AP credit policy. Students should consult their college academic advisor for advice on the number of credits that can be used in their degree program to avoid excessive credit accumulation.
The cost for 2021-2022 is $96 per AP exam or, for students who are income-eligible, $13 per AP exam. Students in year-long courses who register after the November deadline through mid-March will be charged an additional $40 fee for late ordering. Students in Government (a one-semester spring class) must register and pay by mid-March. These deadlines, prices, and fees are set by College Board.
