AP Classes Can Save Money on College Tuition

According to the College Board:

“Students who take longer to graduate from a public college or university typically pay between $8,000 and $19,000 for each additional year.
The typical college cost per year for a four-year public institution is $7,662 for in-state students and $18,529 for out-of-state students.

Taking AP increases eligibility for scholarships and makes candidates more attractive to colleges. 31 percent of colleges and universities consider a student’s AP experience when making decisions about which students will receive scholarships.  85 percent of selective colleges and universities report that a student’s AP experience favorably impacts admissions decisions. Four-year graduation rate is 62% higher

“I took AP throughout high school because it was the most interesting and well-taught program offered. When I reached college, I realized that
I had accumulated a year’s worth of credits. I graduated from Michigan’s undergraduate business program a full year early, saving $30,000 and
a year’s time.” ─ Nikki Baker, student, University of Michigan”
