Question
AP: Won’t I get college credit whether I take a GPC class or an AP class?
Answer
Credit for an Advanced Placement class is awarded by colleges according to how well you do on a one-time end of the course test. Each college has different standards for whether they award credit for an AP test score. A minimum score of 3 is required for credit from any college. Credit for a college class is awarded according to the grade that you earn in the class. In most cases, a C is required for the credit to transfer. AP classes usually require two high school semesters of instruction and will earn only one semester of college credit.
