The AP Program offers college-level courses and exams that you can take in high school.
Taking AP courses and exams in high school could give you an advantage in college by letting you:
Earn College Credit and Placement
Your AP score could earn you college credits before you even set foot on campus. In fact, most AP students who enroll in four-year colleges start school with some credit.
Save Money and Time
Earning credit or placement can open up time on your schedule or even let you graduate early.
Stand Out to Colleges
“AP” on your high school transcript shows colleges you're motivated to succeed, and taking the exam demonstrates your commitment to tackle and complete college-level work.
Keep Your Options Open
Earning college credit with AP can give you the flexibility to change majors, pursue a second degree, study abroad, or seek internships.
