Hi Kanon! Taking AP courses may allow you to get college credit for some courses you may need in your degree. It won't change what courses you need to take for your degree, but it may allow you to skip basic courses so you can focus on taking other courses sooner! If you know what you want to major in in college, and you know where you want to study it, I would recommend looking up that university's AP score requirements (like what scores they'll give credit for which tests) and just take AP courses that will get you credits you will need for your degree. Another option I had that you may also have is getting college credit by taking college courses while in high school (like English, calculus, etc).
