The College Board Advanced Placement Program enables students to pursue college-level studies with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both while still in high school.

By taking an AP course and scoring successfully on the related AP Exam, you can save on college expenses: most colleges and universities nationwide offer college credit, advanced placement, or both, for qualifying AP Exam scores. These credits can allow students to save college tuition, study abroad, or secure a second major.

Check out specific colleges’ guidelines on accepting AP scores for credit and placement by searching the AP Credit Policy database.
