Many universities incentivize students in the US by helping them gain university credit by taking certain courses which are available for them in high school. CLEP (Credit for Life Experiences), Dual Enrollment (also known as Dual Credit), and AP Credit are the names of some of the famous courses that are programmed for the students in the US universities. Policy regarding these credits is, however, not the same in all the colleges as every university has its own policy. These courses help the students to get a higher GPA, increase their chances of completing a degree, and also help in the completion of a degree in a shorter time. To avail these above-mentioned credits, students have to visit collegeboard.org and request to submit the scores to any university of their choice.
