AP Testing Information 2023-24

Dear AAPS AP Students and Families,

The Ann Arbor Public Schools is pleased to offer Advanced Placement (AP) Exams.  For 2023-2024, exams will be administered in person and will be full-length, traditional AP exams for most courses (digital assessments are administered for a select few courses).

Please note that all AP exams administered by AAPS take place on the specific date of the AP exam and at the site address below. Transportation is NOT provided by AAPS and is the responsibility of the AP student:

Eastern Michigan University Student Center

900 Oakwood St

Ypsilanti, MI 48197

Do I need to take an AP test?

Although not required, most students who are enrolled in an AP course choose to pay for and take the AP exam at the end of their year of study. 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. AP exams offer students the opportunity to attain scores that may earn them college credit (depending on the receiving institution).

AAPS is not currently accepting AP exam registrations from non-AAPS students.  

The following May 2024 AP Exam information can be found here:

Self-Study or Virtual Course AP Testing

Ann Arbor Public Schools offers AP testing to ALL of our high school students whether they are enrolled in an AP course or not.  Students who wish to self-study or are taking an online AP course can register for the AP test with us utilizing our “Exam Only” testing course codes.  Students join these courses in their College Board portal just like any other AP course. Students must select their test indicator in the portal and make payment in MyPaymentsPlus just as they would for a traditional AP test.

“Exam Only” Course Join Codes Found HERE

Do You Have a Scheduling Conflict? Miss an Exam?  Contact Us!  Don’t Miss Out!

We will do our best to accommodate your needs within the College Board’s parameters. Our AP Coordinators want your child to be able to take the AP tests they want to take. We will work along with you and the College Board to arrange for late testing when possible.  If you are aware of a conflict with a testing date, please reach out to us as soon as possible (no later than 3/6/24) to see if an alternate test date can be arranged in your circumstances.
