In a concurrent class, college credit is conferred based upon your cumulative effort in the class and a letter grade is added to your ASU-Beebe transcript. In AP courses, students must pass a standardized test at the end of the year to determine if they will be awarded college credit. Each college and university accepts different AP scores.
