Advanced Placement United States History (also known as AP U.S. History or APUSH) is a college-level course and examination offered by College Board as part of the Advanced Placement Program.

The AP U.S. History course is designed to provide the same level of content and instruction that students would face in a freshman-level college survey class. AP U.S. History classes generally use a college-level textbook as the foundation for the course.
