AP Microeconomics is a one-semester, college-level course. Each student is expected to take the AP Microeconomics Exam that is administered in May. Successful achievement on the AP Exam may allow the student to earn three hours of college credit (depending on the policies of individual institutions).


AP Microeconomics introduces students to the cost-benefit analysis that is the economic way of thinking. This analysis is used to understand smaller segments of the economy – specifically, consumers & producers – as they interact in output markets & resource markets, and to understand the government’s impact on these specific economic units.
