Congratulations to all students taking AP this year! You’ve got what it takes to succeed.
AP students, with AP Classroom and AP Daily, you have the tools to help you succeed in your AP course this year. To use the join code your AP teacher gave you to join your class section online in AP Classroom.
Reminder for AP students: The deadline to tell your AP coordinator you're registering for your 2021 AP Exam is [date].
Students, by taking an AP course and exam, you can earn college credit, skip introductory courses, and stand out in the admissions process. All AP students should commit to AP Exams this fall. And students can register with confidence—given this year’s circumstances, AP will waive the $40 canceled exam fee if you later decide not to test.
Reminders for Parents/Guardians of AP Students
If your child is taking an AP course, they have more free support than ever to help them learn throughout the year and prepare for their May 2021 AP Exams, where students have the opportunity to earn college credit!
To help your child stay on track:
- Make sure your child uses the join code your AP teacher gives them to join their class section. This will give them access to AP Classroom where they can practice their skills, receive feedback on their progress, and see real AP Exam questions.
- Beginning September 1, AP Daily videos, on-demand lessons led by AP teachers from across the country, will be available in AP Classroom. Along with other free resources, they provide daily support for students. Students can watch them at their own pace on a mobile device or a computer with internet access, and teachers can also include them as part of their curriculum. There will be videos available for most courses.
- Encourage your child to register for their AP Exams in the fall so they have the chance to stand out to college admissions officers and save money on tuition with a qualifying score of three or more.
