Advanced placement

Advanced placement

The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is an opportunity for students to take one or more university-level courses while in high school. The Advanced Placement course guidelines are developed and published by the College Board, which is a not-for-profit membership association whose mission is to connect students to college/university success and opportunity.  Each AP course covers the breadth of information, skills and assignments found in the corresponding university level course.

AP is accepted by more than 3,600 universities and colleges worldwide for credit, advanced placement, or both based on successful AP exam grades. To get the most current information on a specific university's AP course recognition policy, contact the registrar's office and/or the department of the university that you are interested in attending.
