Most four-year colleges in the United States provide credit and/or advanced placement for qualifying scores. The most selective institutions do not award credits for IBDP and AP courses/scores but expect students to have taken advantage of these programs. Students need to research their specific institution’s policies.
How will these courses affect my grades? All AP courses are graded on a 5 point scale. All IBDP Higher Level (HL) courses are graded on a 5 point scale. Running Start courses are graded on a 4 point scale. If you receive an F or don’t take the exam(s) for any reason, you will be graded on a regular 4-point scale and your course will be reported as a “regular” course on your transcript.
What is RUNNING START? statewide program that provides an opportunity for academically qualified juniors and seniors to enroll in college classes through the University of Hawai ʻ i system as part of their high school coursework. allows public high school students to attend college classes during the fall, spring, and summer while earning both high school and college credits. Currently, nine UH campuses participate in the Running Start program.
Running Start Considerations All approved RS credits earned count as ELECTIVE credit only at Kaiser High School. Not all community college credits will transfer to other 4 year universities.
What does it take?
Character Curiosity, creativity and commitment are key ingredients for success.
Academic Preparation You don't need to be top of your class but you’ll want to make sure your choice is a GOOD FIT FOR YOU.
Motivation, Responsibility, & Time Management
Get real. You don't have to wait for college to start contributing, because AP/IBDP/Running Start are college level courses.
Step up. Surprise yourself. Set bigger goals for yourself, and find yourself doing things you never thought possible.
Other considerations… Course offerings are subject to change depending on Student interest Master scheduling Weighted student formula Enrollment in AP Courses may be adjusted based on Academic progress at the end of this school year Teacher recommendation See individual departments for pre-enrollment procedures.
Other considerations… Summer Work Requirements: Some AP and IBDP Courses require summer work to be completed prior to the start of the school year. Ask about what those requirements are before registering for a course. Summer work will be available electronically in late April 2015.
Academic Honors diploma requirements for the Class of 2016 and on… – 4 credits of Math: The 4th credit beyond Algebra 2 must be earned via a combination of the following half-credit courses (or equivalent IB math courses): Algebra 3, Trigonometry, Analytic Geometry, Precalculus. – 4 credits of Science: Of the four credits, one credit must be in Biology 1 (or equivalent IB Biology; or AP Biology courses); and the other three credits must be lab-based science credits. – Two credits minimum must be from AP/IBDP/Running Start courses (equivalent to credits for 2 college courses).
How do I Sign-Up?
IBDP Students interested in IBDP should see Mr. Bogard before you leave this evening. The early application deadline has passed but students may still submit an application by Nov. 24. Running Start Students interested in the Running Start program should make an appointment to see their grade level counselor to begin the planning process.
How do I Sign-Up? AP Meet with the AP Teacher(s) for the course(s) you are thinking about taking tonight. Learn about course expectations Find out about what kind of commitment it will take in order to succeed. Review the course syllabus Ask questions If you and your family agree that AP is for you: Show your teacher your completed AP Agreement form Ask the teacher for a registration course label for your card. Turn in the AP Agreement form and your registration card in KAP on Nov. 26.
Relax… There is no reason to RUSH the tables tonight. Nothing is going to RUN OUT. Remember, getting an AP Label does not guarantee your spot in the course. Most importantly, you must submit your registration card on time with a complete AP Policy and Agreement form.
Any Questions? You do NOT need to make final decisions tonight. Students will be given an opportunity to get labels tomorrow during KAP Class. Registration cards are due on Nov. 26 in KAP Class. Counselors are available if you have any academic advising questions. Thank you for coming!
