APBP Qualifying Exam and University Credit Agreement

Give students a head start on college coursework


Students who pass the APBP Qualifying Exam have an opportunity to save on tuition costs at universities that have signed our APBP University Credit Agreement.

 

APBP Qualifying Exam

The APBP Qualifying Exam is an optional exam for students who have completed an APBP course taught by an APBP-trained teacher. With a passing score, students can earn college course credit, advanced placement or both at a university who has signed our APBP University Credit Agreement, allowing them to save on tuition and get a jump start on their college accounting courses. 

Verified APBP-trained teachers* may request copies of the exam here. As part of the process, teachers will be required to complete a request form, submit an $86 fee and reserve a proctor who will be responsible for securing and administering the exam.

*If you're a teacher who has completed an APBP training but are unable to access the link above after logging in, please contact us.

 

APBP University Credit Agreement

The APBP University Credit Agreement is a contract between the AICPA and participating universities that outlines the credits and/or advanced placement classes a student will earn upon passing the APBP Qualifying Exam. The exam is optional and is only available to students who have completed an APBP course taught by an APBP-trained teacher.
