If you score high enough to get credit do colleges actually give you the course credits? Do you still have to pay for those credits? Or do they just wave the course requirement and allow you to replace the course with another one?

I'm no expert, but I was given six Bio credits when I got a 4 on the AP Bio exam. In essence, you get free credits to use towards your course requirements (electives or core courses towards a major). I think you can take another course in place of the course that was awarded credits.

Sometimes it exempts you from a required course, other times it gives you credits which you can use to fufill the credit requirements for graduation (hence you can take less classes and still be able to graduate).
