Advanced Placement – Credit by Examination

You challenged yourself in the classroom, so earn college credit for that learning.

It’s no secret that your AP courses were challenging and perhaps even a bit stressful, but in return, you:
  • Are letting colleges know that you’re serious about your education.
  • Have the ability to earn college credit and the potentially skip courses if you do/did well on the AP Exam.
  • Acquired the ability to on save tuition costs and help you graduate on time.
