Graduate early with AP credit?

DD will more than likely have taken 10 AP before going into college, with mostly 4 and 5 on those 10. I read the AP policy on OSU's web site but could not quite understand.

Bottomline, could one graduate early from OSU with a lot of AP credits?

Thanks.

    Depending on the major, it may allow graduating in 4 years.........

    I imagine so, but you'd have to go in knowing exactly what you want to do.

    Ohio State allows a maximum of 45 hours of EM credit to count (basically one year of coursework), and typically only awards credit if you receive a 4 or a 5 on the respective AP test.

    Yes, you could graduate early from OSU because of this, but like some of the other people have said, what's the rush? With those extra hours, pick up a double major, or if you're going into something like engineering, those hours might be enough to ensure a four-year graduation.
