How Virginia colleges and universities credit AP tests

The Norfolk paper reports here ("Advanced Placement courses get mixed reception in Va. colleges," 10/11/04) on the scores required to get credit for Advanced Placement tests at different colleges in Virginia.

In my day, the University gave me course credits for my AP scores in English, American History, Calculus, and Chemistry - and as a result, I never had to take any science or math in college, and I graduated in three years. So, $160 for those 4 tests saved us about $10,000. I wish I could find more deals like that.
