The course content will be viewable prior to the start date. Read more about our online Advanced Placement courses. Our AP courses follow a specific calendar, and the normal 9-month completion policy does not apply to these courses. Therefore, students who have not completed all work by the due date for the course final (listed on the course calendar) will automatically be withdrawn from the course. Students who choose to take the AP exam will need to make their own arrangements. Contact the College Board for assistance in locating a testing site, or contact a local high school to determine whether it administers the test.
Lesson assignments need to be created in Microsoft Word or another word processor that saves files as .doc (Word 97–2003 document) or .rtf (Rich Text format). The same textbook is also used for the fall semester.
