If I take my AP Credits, will my GPA be affected?

<p>I heard that if you took AP Credits, even 5s would only be converted into 3.0s when they calculate your GPA. Is that true?</p>

<p>Not true, at least at NYU. Credits received through AP scores of 4 or 5 are not in any way calculated into your GPA. Scores below 4 do not qualify to receive credit.</p>

<p>^ actually some 3's do count, but only a select few and not all schools count them. If your wondering how an AP class grade will affect your college grades, it won't. If you get credit for a 5 say in History, it's going to show up as fulfilled/credit/ or something like that. Every school does it different, but it should not calculate into your actual GPA.</p>
