AP Courses

Advanced Placement courses are a great opportunity for students to experience a college level course while they are still in high school.  Students are able to earn college credit at most colleges and universities with a score of a 3, 4, or a 5 on an AP exam. However, how colleges award credits varies.  For more specific information on how AP credits are awarded, students should contact the  individual colleges and universities they plan to attend.  There are also links at the bottom of this page that show how each of the colleges and universities in Utah are presently accepting AP credits.
