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.
Students taking concurrent classes can withdraw or drop from a class and will follow the same procedures and deadlines as a regularly enrolled ASU-Beebe student.
