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.
A personalized AP ID label sheet is shipped for each student included in your school’s AP Exam order.
Students place AP ID labels on their paper exam materials, connecting their materials with the registration information they’ve provided. Once an AP ID is assigned to a student, it remains their AP ID every year they take an AP course or exam. Students will receive a new AP ID label sheet with their AP ID each year they take AP Exams.
For AP Chinese and AP Japanese Exams, students don’t place their labels on anything because the entire exam is administered online, but they’ll need to 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.
For AP 2-D Art and Design and AP Drawing, students place their AP ID label on the back of their physical artworks before mailing them to the AP Program. AP Art and Design students also enter their AP ID in the digital submission web application before forwarding their digital portfolio to their AP teacher.
The AP ID labels arrive in the spring in separate shipment from the AP Exams.
The AP Program can’t guarantee AP ID labels can be produced for students added to your exam order after March 15. If a student doesn’t have an AP ID label sheet, they’ll need to write their AP ID on their answer sheet and other exam materials.
Answer sheets are sent in your exam shipments. The answer sheet is a single page, double sided.
