So you want to go to a college that doesn’t offer Advanced Placement credit [SLIDESHOW]
Recently, Dartmouth College announced that it will end the practice of awarding college credit to incoming first-year students who earn qualifying scores on Advanced Placement (AP) exams, beginning with the class of 2018.
“The concern that we have is that increasingly, AP has been seen as equivalent to a college-level course, and it really isn’t, in our opinion,” Dartmouth classics professor Hakan Tell told the Associated Press at the time.

Every school has different policies, it seems. Check out the skinny in the slideshow below.
