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.
