Dear Burke AP student, parents/guardians,

 

Welcome to the AP 2020/21 school year. This is a year of changes and I want to communicate early to make sure everyone 
is prepared for the year! This letter is full of vital information for you to go over together as you make plans to earn college
credits through exam in your advanced placement class(es). If you are in a dual enrollment eligible class, you will receive
another communication with information about that process.

your online supports for AP courses. For more information about how to do this, please use the links below and read more
about what your AP student needs to do to access their account information:

-Each AP student should have ONE AP College Board account. Use the same account you used in year’s past. Do not set
up a new account each year. Students need to go to https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/

-General questions are answered here: https://pages.collegeboard.org/account-help

Will my future college / university accept my AP credit?

As an Advanced Placement student, it is important to obtain accurate information to answer this question. Ask college / university admissions representatives when visiting your junior or early senior year or on their websites. The College Board has links to many universities AP Credit Policy page. That site is: www.collegeboard.com/ap/creditpolicy


Students with Disabilities

The College Board encourages all students who are willing to accept the challenge or a rigorous academic curriculum to be considered for AP courses and exams. Students with documented disabilities may be eligible for accommodations on an AP Exam. These accommodations include extended time, interpreter services, enlarged print, and vocalized exams. Burke's Special Testing Coordinator must submit an Eligibility Form for each student requesting accommodations. Coordinators may not provide testing accommodations for students with disabilities until the College Board has approved these students Eligibility Forms.
