Advanced Placement (AP)
Advanced Placement (AP) exams are taken after students complete the corresponding Advanced Placement course in high school. Advanced Placement courses are challenging, college-level courses that are designed to parallel typical lower-level undergraduate courses. Exams are developed by committees of college and secondary faculty, and are given to test groups of students in actual college courses to determine appropriate passing scores. Institutions must use the course number listed, unless it would be advantageous for the student to award a specific course number with equal credit that satisfies program prerequisites.
More information about Advanced Placement, including descriptions of courses and sample examination questions, is available at http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/Controller.jpf.
