Important Changes for students seeking college credit for PLTW courses:

For the 2019-2020 academic year, PLTW has made the determination to suspend their End-of-Course (EoC) Assessments.  Therefore, Augustana University has amended that requirement to apply for college credit.  Please refer to the PLTW College Credit Registration Form linked below for full details.
