How to Register for AP/DC Courses

AP courses require that you are registered in the AP section of the course.  The academic advisor can handle this request for you.  Remember that if you take the course as an AP course, you MUST take the AP exam at the end of the year.  AP tests vary in cost each year but typically run $90 to $100 per course.

DC courses require you to register for the course at CCU or LeTourneau.  Please see the course descriptions below and then complete the registration steps for the appropriate university.
