Home-schooled Students and Students Whose Schools Do Not Offer AP Exams
Because parents and students cannot order exams directly, the AP Program encourages schools to assist home-schooled students and students whose schools do not offer AP courses and exams.
These students will be using their own school’s code or the state home-school code, and their exam scores will not be included with your school’s score reports.
- Prepare a list of the exams they plan to take.
- Contact AP Services for Student no later than March 1 to get the names and telephone numbers of local AP coordinators:
- 888-225-5427 (toll free in the United States and Canada)
- Contact the coordinators identified by AP Services no later than March 15.
- Inform the coordinator they are trying to locate a school willing to administer AP Exams to outside students.
- Notify the school of any accommodations that may be needed.
- Agree to use the state home-school code provided by the coordinator on the day of the exam.
- Order the necessary exam materials and inform the students when and where to report.
- Collect and submit exam fees with those of the coordinator’s school. Coordinators may negotiate a higher exam fee to recover additional proctoring or administration costs.
- Help get any documented disabilities approved for testing accommodations by the College Board.
- Remind students to bring valid photo identification.
