AP Exams Information

Advanced Placement (AP) Exam Information

Taking AP courses and exams can provide you with a recognized academic credential. Most colleges and universities in the United States grant credit and placement for qualifying AP scores. Each college and university makes its own decisions about awarding credit and placement.

Western Oklahoma State College awards college credit to students who have successfully met score requirements on AP exams. High school counselors assist high school students in making arrangements to take AP exams. The AP exams are NOT administered at Western.

AP Grade Reports are sent in July to:

  1. the single college or university that you designated on your answer sheet;
  2. you; 
  3. your high school

Each report is cumulative and includes grades for all the AP exams you have ever taken. Grade reports can be sent to additional colleges or universities for a fee by calling (888) 308-0013.
