Advanced Placement (AP)

Advanced Placement(AP) in Jeffco

Advanced Placement (AP) courses give Jeffco students another way to earn college credit. At the end of an AP course, students must pass a standardized national test to qualify for college credit. Qualifying grades on AP exams may earn three to six credits for a single course, to up to three years of college standing. AP results are widely accepted for credit at most U.S. universities (approximately 3,800) and at approximately 640 international schools in 46 countries.

Students may earn college credit for scoring a three or higher on the AP exams. The credit is guaranteed to transfer, but it’s not guaranteed to apply to degree requirements. Please contact the colleges you wish to attend to see how your AP scores will be accepted.
