This page offers a summary to help you prepare for the 2024 AP Exams. Review the AP Coordinator’s Manual, Part 2 for complete information.

AP ID Labels

When students provide their registration information in My AP when first enrolling in a class section, each student is assigned a unique, alphanumeric code known as an AP ID. Once an AP ID is assigned to a student, it remains their AP ID every year they take an AP course or exam.

An AP ID label sheet is shipped for each student included in your school’s AP Exam order. Students place AP ID labels on their exam materials, connecting their materials with the registration information they’ve provided.


  • For students taking only an AP Art and Design Portfolio Exam or AP Research Exam, AP ID label sheets aren't sent to schools because these exams don't require an AP ID label to be affixed to exam materials. These subjects also aren't included on the schedule printed on the label sheets. 
  • For AP Chinese and AP Japanese Exams, students refer to their AP ID label sheet so they can enter their AP ID on the student information screen at the beginning of the exam.

The AP ID labels arrive at schools in the spring in a separate shipment from the AP Exams.

Note: AP ID label sheets may not be available for changes to the exam order after March 15. If a student doesn’t have an AP ID label sheet, you can look up the student's AP ID in your student roster in AP Registration and Ordering. The student will then need to write their AP ID on their answer sheet and other exam materials.
