Advanced Placement Courses (AP)
The Advanced Placement program is an academic program provided by the college board, a not-for-profit organization based in Princeton, New Jersey whose mission is to connect students to college success and opportunity. The College Board also runs the SAT and PSAT exams.
With qualifying AP exam grades, students can earn credit, placement, or both at more than 90 percent of colleges and universities in the United States and Canada.
Individual colleges and universities, not the College Board or the AP program, grant course credit and placement. Parents should obtain a college’s AP policy in writing. This information can be found in the institution’s catalog or on its website, or by using the AP credit policy info search at www.collegeboard.com/ap/creditpolicy.
If you are going to Brigham Young University in Utah, the AP transfer credit website is apib.byu.edu.
