Advanced Placement Exams
Taking the Advanced Placement exams is an important part of all AP courses. Glenbard West High School desires that all students take AP exams for the AP classes they are enrolled in. Scoring well on an AP exam can often earn students college credit for their high school class, saving a significant amount of tuition. Starting a few years ago, all public Illinois universities and community colleges award credit to any student who receives a 3 or higher on a 5-point scale.
For the 2018 AP exams, students at Glenbard West High School will be registering online. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access.
This year each AP exam costs $94.00, with the exception of AP Seminar and AP Research, which costs $142.00 per exam. Glenbard West High School desires that every student be able to take their AP exams. Students requiring financial assistance should contact Dr. Rebecca Sulaver, rebecca_[email protected], in the Glenbard West API Office to learn more.
