AP programs need to be well planned by the school. Check into the school you are considering to find out how long they have been working with Advanced Placement or how much research they have done into implementing the program if they are relatively new to it. Universities have shifting credit offerings that can change from one year to the next.

If you already have a university or universities in mind you may want to contact the Director of Admissions for each university to find out about policies specific to that school.

AP schools and the benefits of the program

Schools with the Advanced Placement program help to prepare children for life in college or university. The College Board offers a variety of services and programs that augment benefits of Advanced Placement.

History of the AP Program

The Advanced Placement program was begun in 1955, in cooperation between the high school system and universities and colleges. Course guidelines are determined by the College Board in the United States but there is a Canadian office. Among other programs, the College Board offers MyRoad to help students plan their academic careers.

AP Testing

AP tests are used by universities and colleges to exempt some students from certain entry level courses. Scores are put on a Bell Curve and graded in a unique 5 point system. In most cases, a score of 5 means "extremely qualified," 3 means "qualified" and 1 means "not recommended." However, each college's use of the scores may be different.
