What Are Advanced Placement Courses?

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are courses that meet a prescribed syllabus developed by the College Board.  These courses represent college level study and prepare students to take an examination in May.  The examination is scored on a 1-5 basis.  Scores of "3" or higher are considered "qualifying" scores by the College Board.  Colleges typically consider AP courses favorably when making admissions decisions.  In addition, based on each college's policy, students can earn:

  • Actual college credit for high AP scores -- increasingly, colleges require a score of "4" or "5" to receive full credit.
  • Elective college credit for high AP scores -- such courses cannot fulfill specific college requirements, but can be used to fulfill elective requirements.
  • Advanced Placement -- allowing students to skip the introductory level of a course
  • Sophomore Standing -- this usually requires numerous high AP scores.
  • Permission to take the college's own placement test for credit and/or placement.

Individual college policies differ, and often individual departments within the same college may have different policies.  There are some colleges which give placement only, and some colleges which afford no recognition.  While a "3" is the recommended score by the College Board, there are a few instances where a "2" may be recognized, and other instances in which a "4", or even a "5" is required.  Check with individual colleges for their policies or with the College Board credit policy information list.
