AUSTIN, Texas, July 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- High school students across the country are receiving their Advanced Placement (AP) test scores this summer. Students can take their scores to MyEdu to learn how to save thousands of dollars in college costs.
For the first time, with MyEdu's new credit-by-examination tool, high school students can predetermine the number of college credits and savings gained from taking AP tests in high school. All students have free access to MyEdu's official online academic data and applications.
High school juniors and seniors take standardized AP tests to obtain college credit, and last year over 3.2 million AP tests were taken nationwide. MyEdu has collected AP credit equivalencies for campuses across the U.S. to allow students to determine which AP tests will earn them college credit. Students are able to cross-compare and find the most affordable college options.
The AP Credit Finder, in combination with MyEdu's suite of free academic applications, will help students save time and money by moving them one step closer to earning their college degree.
"The credit-by-examination tool makes financial planning available right at a student's fingertips. Students and their parents will quickly see that AP tests can impact college savings even more than some scholarships," said Karen Holst, VP of Corporate Marketing for MyEdu.
