Jolyn Brand was interviewed by U.S. News Education reporter for her article titled “Use AP Credits to Graduate from College in 3 Years”
Public institutions tend to be more flexible in allowing AP credits. “I have found that public universities are more accepting of AP and dual credit courses for credit than private universities,” says Jolyn Brand, a Houston-based educational consultant.
Brand also has a son at Purdue University in Indiana who is on track to complete his bachelor’s in computer science in three years. “With AP credit and a few dual credit classes, he entered Purdue with 39 credits. Purdue gave him more credits for those transfer classes than his in-state options in Texas,” she says.
