SAT Scores you need to get in

Many universities in the US incentivize students by helping them out to earn college credits by taking certain courses, which are available for them in high school. Here are the names of some of such popular programs: AP Credit, CLEP (Credit for Life Experiences), and Dual Enrollment (also known as Dual Credit). As far as policy for these credits is concerned, each college has a different one. The advantages of such programs include a shorter time to get a degree, increased chances of completing a degree, and a higher GPA. Students who want to avail CLEP and AP credits can visit the website collegeboard.org and request to submit the scores to the college of their choice.
