Beginning July of this year, you will get your AP scores online! Since the AP Program will no longer be sending reports in the mail, there are a few things you’ll want to do to get ready.

The AP Program
  • Provides willing and academically prepared high school students with the opportunity to study and learn at the college level.
  • Each AP course is modeled on a comparable college course. College and University faculty play a vital role in ensuring that AP courses align with college-level standards.
  • AP courses culminate in college-level assessments developed and scores by college and university faculty.
  • Based on their performance on rigorous AP exam, students can earn credit, advanced placement, or both for college 90% of four-year US colleges and universities grant credit or advanced placement. Policies vary widely (and sometime within) institutions.
  • For more information: www.collegeboard.org/ap/creditpolicy

AP courses prepare students majoring in engineering, biochemistry and other STEM majors in college. AP students earn higher GPAs in the advanced college coursesinto which their AP credit allowed them to place, compared to students with the same high school class rank and SAT scores who did not earn AP credit and who did not skip the entry-level college course.
