Advanced Placement (AP) Exams
The Advanced Placement (AP) program enables high school students to complete college-level courses and permits participating college to evaluate that accomplishment by granting credit and/or placement. Teachers must receive approval from the College Board to offer a course with the AP designation. AP exams are administered in the first two weeks of May. Most colleges award credits and/or placement for scores of 3, 4, or 5 on these exams. Please note that there is no designated pass/fail. Three to four units of college credit may be awarded per semester for each test. Credit and required scores vary by institution. HJUHSD offers AP courses in English, math, history-social science, science and Spanish. Students in AP classes are encouraged to take the AP exam and pay the test fee. The exam fee is $94 per exam. There are fee waivers available for eligible students, please see your site testing secretary in the main office for details.
AP Bump Test Dates
The AP Bump tests are different than AP exams. AP bumps are taken in order to qualify for a bump in a student's GPA for taking the AP course. The AP bump tests will take place from April - May 2023.
