Advantages With Taking AP Courses

If your high school offers advanced placement (AP) courses, take them. Completing AP courses will earn you college credits in many schools. Not all colleges accept them. If the school you attend does, and you pass the advanced placement test at the end of the year, you can earn college credits without paying college tuition.

Some students have been able to skip their freshman year in college from the credits they earned through AP courses and testing. As a result, you and your family will end up saving thousands of dollars. Check with your guidance counselor or principal and the colleges of your choice to see how AP courses may help you.
