Advanced Placement

Advanced placement is a program of college-level courses and exams administered at the high school level that gives incoming freshman the opportunity to earn college credit.  Achieving satisfactory scores on AP Examinations has many benefits.  Advanced placement in college allows you to move beyond work already completed in high school and begin with higher-level courses.  This gives you the opportunity to explore areas you wouldn’t otherwise have time to study and to participate in internships and study abroad programs.  Students who take AP courses learn a subject in great depth, develop analytical reasoning skills, and form disciplined study habits appropriate for continued success at the college level.

All test scores must be sent directly from the exam company to Minot State University.  The follow AP examinations are accepted by Minot State University for lower division, satisfactory college credit assuming the minimum required score has been obtained:
