April marks the beginning of spring and the final quarter of study for the 2012-2013 school year.  Students currently enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) courses, as well as many International Baccalaureate students, have recently completed the registration process for AP examinations that are administered in May.  Since its inception in 1955, the AP Program has allowed millions of students in thousands of high schools worldwide to take college level courses and exams, and to earn college credit or placement while still in high school.  
AP courses are an excellent addition to the college-bound student’s resume.  Regardless of the AP test score attained, colleges and universities continue to look at participation in AP courses and the academic rigor as an indicator of a potential student’s overall college readiness.
The AP Equivalency Chart listed to the right indicates the college credit or advanced standing that may be granted at the University of Colorado, Boulder.  For more information on AP testing at Smoky Hill High School, please contact the Post Grad Center at 720-886-5472.
This chart was prepared based on spring 2012 exams.  Credit awarded is subject to change based on CU – Boulder faculty review of spring 2013 exams.  There is no guarantee that all AP credit will apply to a specific degree program.  The Dean’s Office of each college and school makes the final determination on how AP credits apply toward degree requirements.  EBIO1210, 1220, 1230, and 1240
