Students taking such courses have the option to take an Advanced Placement and/or International Baccalaureate exam following completion of the course. Some colleges, including all state institutions in Colorado pursuant to Colorado Commission on Higher Education policy, offer credit based on a student's Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exam score. Students who take an Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate exam must pay an exam fee.
