(AP) Advanced Placement

Advanced Placement (AP) Courses are offered in English, mathematics, science, social studies and other selected areas. With AP, students are able to experience the rigors of college-level studies while still having the support of the high school environment. With qualifying AP exam scores, students may earn credit from a large majority of colleges and universities. It is the student’s responsibility to contact specific universities for their individual policies and score requirements for credit. The following website allows students to check credit transferability: https://apstudent.collegeboard.org/creditandplacement/search-credit-policies .


NOTE: Students enrolled in an AP course are highly expected to take the Advanced Placement exam in May of the school year in which the student is enrolled.

Students and parents can’t order AP Exams directly, but you should be able to arrange to take the exam at a nearby high school that administers them. Here’s how.

Your first step is to contact AP Services for Students at 888-225-5427 (toll-free in the United States and Canada) or +1-212-632-1780 or apstudents@info.collegeboard.org. That office can give you contact information for local AP coordinators who may be willing to test outside students. We recommend you do this no later than September 4.

You are then responsible for contacting coordinators on that list to see if one of them can arrange testing for you. You should do this no later than October 4. Note that schools may have their own local deadlines for receiving requests from outside students to test at their school.

When you find an AP coordinator able to administer your AP Exam(s), he or she is responsible for ordering your exam materials, telling you when and where to report for the exams, and collecting the exam fees.

 

More information on registering is available online via the AP College Board Website.
