However, it is the individual colleges and universities, not the College Board or the AP Program, that grant course credit and placement. Policies vary widely so it is up to the student to obtain the college's AP policy in writing. You can find this information in the college's catalog or on its Web site, or by using the AP Credit Policy Info search at www.collegeboard.com/ap/creditpolicy
    IMPORTANT: The best source of information regarding AP credit is obtained directly from the college/university to which you may apply.
