ADVANCED PLACEMENT AND INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE COURSEWORK
Tulsa Public Schools’ students who enroll in courses provided through the College Board’s Advanced Placement (AP) program or the International Baccalaureate (IB) Organization’s IB program must take the associated examinations for those courses when eligible.

Registrars shall remove from a student’s GPA weighted grade calculation the weighting of any AP or IB course for which no examination registration exists.
Counselors shall make available information regarding examination fee reductions and/or waivers for eligible students/families as authorized by the examining agencies and/or the Oklahoma State Department of Education.
