AP courses, sponsored by The College Board, combine challenging college-level curricula and potential college dollar savings.  They are increasingly popular throughout the state and the nation, as more and more high school students receive college credit or advanced standing upon successful completion of national Advanced Placement exams in May.  A student may sign up for an AP exam without taking a AP course, although students who have prepared for the exam in an AP class typically achieve at a much higher level.  More information about the Advanced Placement program is available on the College Board website at http://www.collegeboard.com/student/testing/ap/about.html.

Why do so many of students take Advanced Placement courses?

Success in Advanced Placement coursework represents an important savings in time and money for students entering college.  Most universities grant not only college credit but also advanced standing to students entering with Advanced Placement credit. 

Which Colleges and Universities Accept AP Credit?

Nearly 3000 institutions grant up to a year of credit for a sufficient number of qualifying AP grades.  AP credit policy info for most colleges can be found at: http://collegesearch.collegeboard.com/apcreditpolicy/index.jsp

AP credits may reduce the cost of tuition for students, or may allow students to pursue a second and third major.  Students may also receive sophomore standing during their freshmen year, allowing them to sign up for classes earlier that their age-range peers, facilitating an on-target graduation date.  These are just two of the many reasons why students choose to pursue rigorous AP college level coursework in high school.

There are many other advantages to students taking Advanced Placement coursework.  These courses allow students to challenge themselves at a college level within the high school setting, thus permitting them to sharpen their academic skills and build confidence before going to college.  Advanced Placement courses on a transcript demonstrate a student's willingness to tackle more difficult courses.  For highly selective universities, AP coursework on transcripts is the norm for entering freshmen.  Students taking AP courses are eligible for honors and other special programs available to students who have received Advanced Placement recognition.  Students entering a college with AP courses are usually exempted from taking introductory courses and permitted to take higher-level courses.  These reasons are why many Cedarburg students elect to take college level coursework during high school.
