Advanced Placement (AP)

Advanced Placement (AP) courses and exams give students the chance to tackle college-level work while they are still in high school and earn college credit and placement.  Several different courses of study and exams are offered through this program.

  • AP Potential Tool Webinar
  • Webinar on how districts can use the AP Potential Tool to promote student participation in advance academic opportunities.

  • Free and Reduced Low-Income Exam Reimbursement Program
  • To remove the financial barrier to taking the AP, International Baccalaureate (IB), and CLEP exams, the State School Aid Act (MCL 388.1694) allocated $1.2 million dollars available to low-income students and their families.  The law encourages students to take IB and AP courses, and participate in the exams associated with these courses.  These exams can translate into college credit, subsequently reducing college tuition costs.
