Dual Credit

All students in dual credit courses are enrolled with St. Petersburg College, and they have access to their courses through SPC’s MyCourses online classroom system. Students enrolled in dual credit courses will need to access the course syllabus in MyCourses in order to find the required textbooks for each course. It is the student’s responsibility to purchase the correct textbooks as listed in the course syllabus on their SPC MyCourses web page.

Those students in dual credit courses that require the purchase of electronic textbooks will have the opportunity to purchase access to the e-book following the mock schedule on August 11th. A member of the school staff will be present to assist families to ensure they purchase the correct e-books and have access to their online course.

Advanced Placement

AP Courses require purchase of an electronic textbook and/or access to an online curriculum. Therefore, AP students will have the opportunity to purchase access to their e-books and online curriculum following the mock schedule on August 11th. A member of the school staff will be present to assist families to ensure they purchase the correct e-books and have access to their online course. Most AP courses require the purchase of a workbook for practice, which should be purchased in advance of the beginning of school in order to have it for class the first week. Please see the chart below for information about those.

In addition, some AP courses have summer reading or work assignments that require the purchase of workbooks and textbooks now. Only the books with the word Summer under the Adoption Level are required for purchase at this point. Please read the list below to make sure you purchase any required books for assigned summer work and view the Summer Assignments webpage on the school website to read the instructions and watch the instructional video for each course.
