AP Psychology: The Exam | AP Central – The College Board
One great benefit of taking AP Exams is the opportunity to earn college credit and placement. Nearly all colleges and universities in the United States grant credit and placement for qualifying AP scores. You can save money and get a head start on your degree when you enter college with credit you’ve already earned through AP.

Taking challenging AP courses can help you get into college. Once you’re in college, the skills that you developed in your AP courses — critical thinking, time management, study skills, etc. — will serve you well in college classes. AP can also help you save on college costs through AP credit, expanded scholarship opportunities and a greater likelihood of graduating on time.
Each college and university makes its own decisions about awarding credit and placement. Most have a written policy spelling out things like the minimum required score to earn credit for a given AP Exam, the amount of credit awarded and how credits are applied.
