PSAT/NMSTQ is an opportunity for students to qualify for the National Merit Scholarship Program and other scholarships. The PSAT/NMSTQ also provides valuable feedback on strengths and skills necessary for college study and helps prepare students for the SAT

Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

Students in AP courses might earn college credit and/or advanced placement in college if they perform well on AP exams given in May and if their college of choice accepts the AP exam for credit. College credit is not guaranteed but rather is determined by each individual college upon the student’s enrollment in that college.

AP courses at Roosevelt High School prepare students for these exams, students must pay a fee for AP exams. Students should see the Roosevelt High School Academic Intervention Specialist/Testing Coordinator if they need fee assistance. AP offerings may vary from year to year depending on student interest and staffing. Prerequisites for AP courses are outlined in the course descriptions in the Course Descriptions book on the Course Registration page. See: Advanced Placement (AP) Courses
