up with work on their own Generally competent test-takers in relevant subjects Students who may miss class often Students who tend to miss deadlines and get behind Students who have very little disposable time to

do assignments and labs and study for exams Students with up-anddown history in that subject AP vs. Concurrent Enrollment Advanced Placement Specific to the Post-Secondary Institution (apscore.collegeboard.org/creditandplacement) Credit depends on performance on the AP exam Must send scores to Colleges for credit consideration Concurrent

Enrollment Guaranteed transfer courses Based on successful completion of the course (grade of C or better). Creates a college record If my class is also AP, is concurrent credit easier or harder? Advanced Placement (AP) is lower risk financially (smaller amount lost if not successful), higher risk academically (it all comes down to one exam) Concurrent credit is higher risk financially (if you dont pass) and

lower risk academically (your credit doesnt depend on just one test) Both options are challenging How do I enroll?
