AP or DE

I'm in the early college program, so I'm in a lot of DE courses right now, but do top colleges prefer AP courses over these?

Hi, I am part of an early college program as well and I actually asked this question to many college representatives. They don't have a preference! Although, they do like seeing that people are doing well in their college classes or AP classes. I hope this helps!

Both are accepted, but APs may be more affordable depending on your Early College program. I'm a homeschooled senior, and I did 4 APs and 40 credits of DE and just got waitlisted at Stanford (yes, waitlist is still something for me to brag about:).

Hey Livi! When I asked counselors, they preferred the AP credit because it is standardized.

They are pretty equivalent, people tend to say AP more because they are more commonly taken as they are from their high school. College counselors want to see rigor and that you can excel in college level material. It doesn't matter if it's AP or DE.
