    AP & Dual Credit Courses

    Belleville West offers Advanced Placement (AP) courses in several departments.  AP courses meet the requirements of the College Board Advanced Placement curriculum.  These courses are designed to prepare students to take the advanced placement test for that course, which is an optional test given in May.  Since the test is optional, students are responsible for registering for the test and paying any fees associated with the test.  Depending on the student’s score and the criteria of the specific university, students may earn college credit.
