Advanced Placement (AP) courses provide learners with an opportunity to take college-level coursework in high school. Subject area learning goes deeper into learner areas of interest. Rigorous class material, classroom discussions, and challenging assignments help learners develop knowledge and critical thinking skills expected of college students.

AP facilitators work with learners to develop the skills, abilities, and content knowledge they will need for post-secondary learning. Each AP course concludes with the AP Exam developed and scored by college and university faculty and experienced AP teachers. AP Exams are an essential part of the AP experience, enabling learners to apply the critical thinking skills they've learned in a comprehensive exam.

Earn College Credit

Performing well on an AP Exam means the opportunity to earn college credit. Most colleges and universities accept successful exam scores for credit, advanced placement, or both. Research shows that learners who score a 3 or higher typically earn higher GPAs in college and have higher college completion rates.

Individual colleges and universities, not the College Board or the AP Program, grant course credit and placement. You should obtain a college's AP policy in writing. You can usually find this information through the institution directly or by using the AP Credit Policy Info search at www.collegeboard.org/ap/creditpolicy.

Colleges that receive your AP score report will typically notify you during the summer of any advanced placement, credit or exemption you have earned. You can also contact your college to find out how your AP Exam scores are being applied.
