How do I know which scores to report?

For most schools, 4s and 5s are reported. If the school accepts a 3 for college credit, report it. For example, the University of Maryland accepts a 3 for AP Language and Composition and AP Literature. The University of South Carolina is much more generous with multiple courses offering college credit for a 3 AP score. If on-time or early graduation is a goal, make sure to consider schools where you can get a head start on general education credits is considered. You should know the difference between schools.

Do admissions consider AP scores as part of the student's academic profile?
