 AP › Not Just Earning College Credit!

  • BYU gives extra consideration for new freshmen applicants just for taking AP courses—even if you don’t take the AP exam!
  • AP and IB classes help students prepare for the ACT and SAT exams.
  • AP courses are considered to be great preparation for university-bound students, so even though it’s good to earn college credit with AP test scores, it’s even better to come prepared to do your best.
  • Come to BYU prepared!

Entering students with AP English credit are strongly encouraged to take a First-Year Writing course (Wrtg 150, Honrs 150, or Phil 150).  Studies show that doing so contributes greatly to their success at the university.  As part of their major requirements, some departments also require a First-Year Writing course even for students with AP English credit.
