Returning AP Exams

There are specific instructions about returning AP Exam materials for the following schools. All other schools should follow the instructions in Part 2 of the 2023-24 AP Coordinator’s Manual.

  • Schools in the U.S. Returning 150 or More Regularly Scheduled AP Exams 
    Important Updates for 2024 AP Exams: Due to AP Exams being administered later this year, schools in the U.S. giving more than 150 exams will return regularly scheduled exam materials in 3 shipments. Learn more.
  • Schools Outside the U.S. and Puerto Rico Returning with DHL  
    Schools outside the U.S. and Puerto Rico that don't receive pre-printed labels with their AP Exam materials will use the ETS Returns via DHL portal to generate and print their DHL return labels and schedule the pickup of their AP Exam return shipment(s). Learn more.  

For All Schools 

June 1 is the final deadline for all exam materials (regularly scheduled or late testing) to be received by the AP Program. Schools are billed twice the fee for each exam in shipments received after this date. 

All completed answer sheets and secure AP Exam materials (exam booklets, orange booklets included with some of the exams, and master CDs) must be returned to the AP Program.
