Most two- and four-year colleges and universities in the United States offer credit or advanced placement for qualifying AP Exam scores or transfer credits from NDSCS for dual credit classes.
Credit: Students earn credit toward their college degrees.
Advanced placement: Students can skip introductory courses and move directly into higher-level classes, and/or fulfill general education requirements.
AP and College Success
A recent study* showed that students who earned a 3, 4, or 5 on the AP Exam had higher first-year college grade point averages and were more likely to return for the second year of college than non-AP students of similar ability.

“One of the best standard predictors of academic success at Harvard is performance on Advanced Placement Examinations.”
