GOCAPS courses

What is AP vs. What is Dual Credit?

AP stands for Advanced Placement.  Advanced Placement are courses offered nation-wide in high schools that give college-level curriculum and exams to high school students.  Students will earn (weighted) high school credit at Hillcrest while taking the course.  They then have the option to take the AP Exam at the end of the school year.  If they score a 4 or 5, they will have earned college credit.  A score of a 3 might or might not transfer and is dependent on the higher education institution they attend.  A score of 1 or 2 will not earn credit.  The AP exam cost was $95 in 2021, but is free to take for free and reduced lunch students.  

Dual credit is where students earn high school credit and college credit simultaneously.  The advantage of dual credit of AP exams is that it is guaranteed.  What grade the student at high school will be the grade on their college transcript.  

Why are taking these classes important?

Both of these are designed to expand access to higher education for students, as well as give students the skills needed to be college and career ready such as communication, literacy, critical thinking, work ethic habits, and teamwork. They also allow students to explore their creativity and be challenged at their level.

I’m Worried About Cost

Hornet Fund Applications:

This is only for Hillcrest students who can demonstrate financial hardship.  Hillcrest can support a limited number of Hornet Fund applicants each year, and for one dual credit course only for selected applicants. Please see Ms. Toynton in the counseling center for an application form.  

MSU Free/Reduced Lunch Scholarship:  

Students applying for dual credit through MSU, who are on free/reduced lunch, can qualify for this program where you receive up to 6 hours of dual credit per semester at no charge.  Parents/guardians, when providing consent, will be given the opportunity to disclose if their student qualifies for free/reduced lunches and give permission to MSU to verify this information with Hillcrest. Find out more at:

https://dualcredit.missouristate.edu/free-and-reduced-lunch-scholarship.htm 

Missouri State Advantage Scholarship (for those that attend MSU after Hillcrest):

The requirements of this $1,000 scholarship includes:


Sample Pathway to Dual Credit for AP Math Courses

NOTES:

Which should I take?

Are you …

Then take …

Not sure of your college major?

College Algebra and College Statistics

No matter what your major, you will be covered

thinking of a STEM /pre-med / pre-law major?

AP Calculus track – it will make you competitive for these schools when you apply

Business or Social Science major?

College Algebra – precalculus – statistics

These will all be needed in those areas

Vocational or Trade school

College Algebra – many of these schools have a math requirement that this will fulfill

Most college students say that math is their hardest subject in college – particularly those students who are not STEM majors.  Taking college algebra and statistics while in high school can give you an edge going into college – it may be the only math you’ll need!  


How to Sign Up for AP Exams

If you want to take the AP exam for courses coded “AP,” please notify your teacher and Ms. Cowan, assistant principal at HHS.  You will need to sign up for a college board account.
