- Students who take their exams during the scheduled time will get scores on time, but scores may be delayed if they take the make-up exam.
- AP Studio Art has some changes to the submission process. All of the details can be found here. The deadline for submission of artwork is now Tuesday, May 26, 11:59pm ET.- A webinar was held by Trevor Packer, Senior Vice President of AP and Instruction at College Board, specifically for parents about how they can help their students prepare for AP exams. You can register and view the recorded webinar here.
**We want to strongly encourage all students to continue to engage in their AP classes and exams, as colleges will still be awarding credit for the exams scores. However, given the situation we are in and knowing that not every student may have the ability to focus on the test right now, students will be allowed to opt out of their exam and we will not require it for AP credit on students' transcripts.**
