How do virtual school students enroll in class sections and exam only sections?

There are several reasons why students from virtual schools may need to be enrolled in both a class section through their course provider and the exam only section through your school.

  • Score reports: For the virtual school to receive the student’s score report, the student needs to be enrolled in the class section for the course through their virtual school in addition to the exam only section at your school.
  • State subsidies: If a state requires students taking an AP Exam to be enrolled in the corresponding course in order to receive state funding for their exam, students need to be enrolled in a class section through their virtual school to be eligible for funding.
  • Second-semester courses: If a student is taking a second-semester course through their virtual school, you may need to submit their exam order after November 13. In this case, the student needs to be enrolled in both an exam only section at your school and a second-semester class section through their provider so that the late order fee won’t be applied.
  • AP Classroom assigned resources: AP Classroom resources that need to be assigned by teachers aren’t available for exam only sections. If a student is enrolled in both an exam only section and a class section for a course, they’ll have access to AP Classroom resources assigned by the teacher of the class section.
