Why Take AP? Top Reasons to Take Advanced Placement Classes

Stand Out in College Admissions

  • Deciding to take an AP course lets colleges and universities know that you have what it takes to succeed in an undergraduate environment. When admissions officers see “AP” on your transcript, they know that what you experienced in a particular class has prepared you well for the challenges of college.

Earn College Credits

  • By taking an AP course and scoring successfully on the related AP Exam, you can save on college expenses: most colleges and universities nationwide offer college credit, advanced placement, or both, for qualifying AP Exam scores. These credits can allow students to save college tuition, study abroad, or secure a second major.

Skip Introductory Classes

  • If you already know your preferred college major, taking a related AP course and earning a qualifying score on the AP Exam can help you advance and avoid required introductory courses – so you can move directly into upper-level classes and focus on the work that interests you most.

Build College Skills

  • Taking an AP course builds the skills you'll need throughout your college years. AP courses let you know what to expect during the next phase of your educational journey, and help you build the confidence to succeed.
