AP Course Designation Changes

Beginning in 2007, changes to AP (Advanced Placement) course designations have been made by AP Central (College Board). Any teacher, parent, or independent learner providing an AP course must submit a course audit and syllabus to AP Central for approval before being authorized to designate the course on the student’s transcript as an AP course. The purpose for this is to attempt to insure consistent quality in AP course requirements “to assist colleges to better interpret secondary school courses marked ‘AP’ on students’ transcripts.” (AP Central) On AP Central’s websiteyou will find information on creating your account in order to submit the necessary forms. If you have questions, you can also call 877.274.3570.
