COLLEGE CREDITS AT LINCOLN
Lincoln High School offers students many opportunities to earn college credits while in high school. Students that successfully take college courses while in high school, especially Advanced Placement courses, are shown to be much more successful in college.
More on AP Courses: Each spring, the College Board offers students across the country the opportunity take AP exams. Students receive a score of 1-5 on each exam; a score of 3 or higher may qualify them for college credit, advanced placement, or both in the subject area. Each college and university has its own policy on whether or not to accept AP exam scores for credit or placement.
According to the College Board’s brochure entitled, Frequently Asked Questions about the AP Program, “an AP experience that culminates in an exam grade of 3 or higher has a significant impact on a student’s likelihood of college success. Simply said, a high-quality AP course in high school does an excellent job of fortifying students for a successful transition into the battery of college courses they’ll experience in their first semester at college.” (3)
