Credit by Exam: AP Scores

With 38 courses in everything from computer science to art history, AP® gives you the opportunity to dig deeper into subjects you're curious about and earn college credit while in high school.

Deciding to take an AP course lets colleges and universities know that you have what it takes to succeed in an undergraduate environment. When admissions officers see “AP” on your transcript, they know that what you experienced in a particular class has prepared you well for the challenges of college. Taking AP is a sign that you’re up for the most rigorous classes your high school has to offer.
