Cut College Costs with Advanced Placement
Advanced Placement (AP) classes are not for every student, but if you have a child who is college-bound consider this: about one third of all students entering college have taken at least one AP exam, and of those, nearly 10 percent were able to enter college as sophomores. With todayís staggering tuition costs, that alone is hugely significant. Even if your child takes only one AP exam for a course required by his major, he will not only save the excessive tuition and book costs for that course, but by accomplishing this while at home he will also save the corresponding room and board costs.
Other benefits include:
Reduced course load, allowing your child to take fewer classes while in college, and giving him more time to dedicate to particularly troublesome courses.
Completion of AP exams signals to admission officers your childís preparedness for college.
More flexibility in your childís college classes, so he can pick up an elective or two that would be prohibitive under other circumstances.
