In the US, many universities incentivize students by helping them earn university credit by taking certain courses in high school. Dual Enrollment (also known as Dual Credit), AP Credit, and CLEP (Credit for Life Experiences) are among the most popular programs. Regarding these credits, however, every university has its own policy. The benefits of taking such programs include a shorter time to obtain a degree, a higher GPA, and increased chances of completing the degree. Students who want to avail AP and CLEP credits are recommended to visit collegeboard.org and ask them to submit the scores to the university of their choice.
