Dual Enrollment vs. Advanced Placement
College credit earned through the dual enrollment program is based on a student's cumulative performance throughout the duration of the course. A student will receive UNO credit on their UNO transcript if they have submitted an approved application, paid the appropriate
Note: If you are enrolled and successfully pass a UNO Dual Enrollment class for which you are awarded academic credit, you cannot be awarded additional academic credit at UNO via the Advanced Placement (AP) Credit process for the same class.
Advanced Placement is administered by the College Board. Earning college credit through the AP Program depends on how well students perform on the national AP exam in May. Not every student who passes an AP course will achieve a score high enough on the national AP exam to earn college credit. A student's performance on the AP exam, however, does not impact dual enrollment grades and credit.
The $250 Dual Enrollment fee will cover the cost of the AP exam. UNO Dual Enrollment does not require that students take the AP exam in order to receive UNO college credit. We encourage students to talk with their high school about their AP exam policies.
