Is there any possibility of an extension of the performance task deadline?

There’s no guarantee of an extension beyond the deadline. Teachers should plan their academic calendars, and set interim deadlines to review students’ work, allowing for unforeseen circumstances so that students have made final submission of the Create performance task by April 30, 11:59 p.m. ET.

Note: It’s likely there will be a higher volume of simultaneous submissions as the 11:59 p.m. ET deadline approaches, which means your file may take longer to upload in the AP Digital Portfolio. We strongly advise you to build extra time to prepare the upload and submit so you don’t risk missing the deadline. Do not wait until the last minute to upload your performance task as final.

For extreme circumstances, teachers or coordinators can write to apcsp@collegeboard.org to explain their situation. Extensions are not guaranteed and will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
