Advanced Placement (AP) Exams

  • The Ann Arbor Public Schools is pleased to offer Advanced Placement (AP) Exams to AAPS students.  For 2022, exams will be administered in-person and will be full length, traditional AP exams.  Currently, the College Board has no plans for any type of online exams.  

    Although not required, most students who are enrolled in an AP course choose to pay for and take the AP exam. Students who are enrolled with A2Virtual+ OR who wish to self-study for the AP exam also have the opportunity to register for AP exams.  Reduced price exams are available for eligible students.

    AAPS is not currently accepting AP exam registrations from non-AAPS students.  Non-AAPS students who wish to test with AAPS can express their interest by CLICKING HERE

    1. Sign into
    2. Select “Ann Arbor Public Schools” (if needed)
    3. Click on “AP Testing”
