Advanced Placement Courses

Advanced Placement courses offer students many advantages when they enter college including academic credit, exemption from introductory courses and permission to take higher level courses. More than 500,000 students nationwide participate in the AP course selection each year and receive many of these benefits. Nonnewaug students should check with the college they plan to attend to verify the benefits offered to AP students.

After students take an AP Exam, the College Board sends a score report to the college or university that was designated on the student's answer sheet. The score report is cumulative and includes scores for all the AP Exams ever taken. When students login online, they will be able to see their entire score report and score-send history. If students wish to send additional score reports to colleges, universities and scholarship programs, they can do so online for a fee.
