Many Seton students choose to take Advanced Placement (AP) classes as a way to earn college credit. There are two ways to receive college credit for these classes; either by passing the AP test in the Spring or through Early College Credit Enrollment. Students who receive at least a three on the AP exam may be eligible to receive college credit. College credit is awarded through the receiving institution of higher education and dependent upon that institution’s policies. Seton offers the following AP classes:
Students at Seton High School have the opportunity to earn up to 39 college credits through classes taken directly on our campus; 29 of those credits can be taken through the Early College Credit (dual enrollment) courses with Mount St. Joseph University.
The Early College Credit program allows students to take AP classes and earn college credit without necessarily having to take the AP test. Students who successfully complete an eligible AP course is awarded credit as evidenced by a college transcript awarded through Mount St. Joseph University. Credit is then transferable to other colleges and universities throughout the country. College credit policies of colleges and universities vary. Parents should contact colleges of interest to determine if the credit is transferable and how the credit will be applied. For more information about Early College Credit, please contact your daughter’s Academic Advisor or Mrs. Susan Hollenbach, Associate Principal of Academics at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513-471-2600 ext. 103.
