AP AND DUAL CREDIT
OnRamps I have assignments that are due for my OnRamps class do I need to turn them in?

OnRamps is going to evaluate where we are in the curriculum once we start distance learning.  In the meantime, you should expect that assignments that have already been given will be due as assigned. Please keep an eye on your email and on Canvas for further directions. 


Will I be able to get college credit for my OnRamps class if the closing continues?

The closing will not prevent you from earning your college credit provided you continue to turn in quality work and earn a passing grade.

Tarrant County College (Dual Credit Students)

I am taking a face-to-face College Algebra class at Byron. Will we meet face to face?

TCC has moved all classes online for the remainder of the semester. That said, when NISD resumes a regular face-to-face class schedule you will still meet with Ms. Tennyson as before however, you may be required to submit work online. 


TCC is starting classes on March 23, but NISD is not. What does this mean for my face-to-face College Algebra class at Byron?

Your College Algebra class will be online and will begin March 23rd with the rest of TCC.  Please check your TCC email or instructions from the college and from Ms. Tennyson. 


My dual credit class was online already. What should I be doing?

TCC extended their spring break through March 20th.  You should resume your online dual credit courses on March 23th as you were doing before the break.


I’m worried that this might hurt my grade. Can I drop my dual credit class?

Please check the drop deadlines for TCC HERE. You may still be able to drop, but you will not be eligible for a refund. The decision to drop should be made carefully and should include conversations with your parents and your high school counselor.  In some cases, dropping a course at this time could put graduation in jeopardy and we certainly don’t want that. 


I’m a senior and I already know I’m not going to pass my dual credit class. Will I be able to graduate?

Failing a dual credit class your senior year could put graduation in jeopardy. Please contact your high school counselor immediately so she/he can work with you to find a solution.

Will we have AP Exams this year?

Yes, the College Board just released their plan to offer AP Exams to be taken online from home. Our AP Coordinators are working through that right now so we can help communicate it more clearly to you. You can view the College Board announcement HERE.


I have read through the College Board information about exams, but I feel like I won’t be prepared to take the AP Exam. Can I get a refund?

Yes. The College Board has agreed to waive the cancellation fee for this year only.  If you do not wish to take the AP Exam please let your AP Coordinator know so they can work with Total Registration to issue a refund.  Please keep in mind that we have no control over transaction fees so it is possible that a small amount of what you paid will not be able to be refunded.


Campus AP Coordinators


I decided to cancel my Exam before all of this happened and wasn’t eligible for a refund. Do I get a refund now?

Are there any remote resources I can use to help prepare for the AP Exam?

Yes. The College Board has put together several resources that will be available to you after March 25th. You can access them HERE. Additionally, NISD AP teachers will continue to provide instruction and resources for students during remote learning.


My subject usually offers a sub score option (example: Calculus BC students also get a Calculus AB subscore for potential AP credit) Will I still get this?

Due to the changes in the Exams for this year subs cores are not being provided by The College Board.
