College Credit Opportunities
In AP and College Now courses, students will be challenged to work at a higher level, engage in intense discussion, solve problems collaboratively, and learn to write clearly and persuasively. Most four-year colleges in the United States and colleges in more than 60 other countries give students credit, advanced placement, or both on the basis of AP and Exam scores. By entering college with AP credits, students save money in tuition, have the ability to move into upper level courses, pursue a double major, or study abroad.
Important Information from College Board
The AP Program is prepared to meet schools and students where they are this year. AP will support in-school testing in 2021 because administering exams in schools maximizes access and opportunity, and we’ll provide a contingency testing option—that contains full course content—if school buildings close for safety concerns.
If students register for AP Exams this fall, AP will waive the $40 cancellation or unused exam fee so all students can register with confidence.
