AP is a Global Credential

Qualifying AP Exam scores earn university credit in nearly all universities in the United States and Canada, and are recognized in 60 other countries worldwide. Scores of 3 or 4 on AP Exams fulfill admission requirements in many universities in the UK and Europe.

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.

Stand out to Colleges

Students who take AP courses send a signal to colleges that they’re serious about their education and that they’re willing to challenge themselves with rigorous coursework.

Develop College Skills

Time management, critical thinking, scholarly writing—AP courses and exams help you hone the skills you’ll need in college and career.

Succeed in College

Research shows that students who receive a score of 2 on their AP Exams are ready for college work. Research shows that students who receive a score of 3 or higher on AP Exams typically experience greater academic success in college and have higher graduation rates than their non-AP peers.
