Art and Design Digital Submission Overview

  • AP Art and Design students submit their work through the AP Digital Portfolio.  
  • NEW: The AP Digital Portfolio became available in late September for students to begin uploading work.

  • A student’s AP Art and Design Portfolio Exam will only be sent to the AP Program for scoring if the AP coordinator has submitted an exam order through AP Registration and Ordering. 

  • All work is submitted digitally. Students don’t mail physical work to the AP Program.

  • Students are required to individually submit their 3 portfolio components as final in the AP Digital Portfolio: Sustained Investigation Images, Sustained Investigation Written Evidence, and Selected Works. 
  • Students are responsible for submitting their portfolio components to the AP Program by the May 10, 2024, 8 p.m. ET deadline. Teachers and AP coordinators do not forward portfolios to the AP Program.
  • Teachers (and AP coordinators for exam only students) should set an earlier deadline--prior to the final AP Program deadline--for students to submit their portfolio components so they can review the work for plagiarism and ensure students’ 3 portfolio components are all submitted as final by the May 10 AP Program deadline.  
  • AP coordinators should support students enrolled in AP Art and Design exam only sections at their school. AP coordinators should also work with their AP Art and Design teachers to ensure all students’ portfolio components are submitted as final to the AP Program by the deadline.  

The portfolio requirements are the same as in previous years: Students are required to submit 15 images in the Sustained Investigation section, complete written evidence in the Sustained Investigation section, and submit images of 5 works in the Selected Works section. For information about portfolio requirements, see the AP Art and Design Program page on AP Students.
