Here’s what’s changing about AP Art and Design digital submission starting this school year:
- AP Art and Design Portfolio Exams are now submitted through the AP Digital Portfolio.
- AP Art and Design Portfolio Exams will be submitted digitally only. Students no longer mail their physical work to the AP Program for AP 2-D Art and Design or AP Drawing.
- Students are required to individually submit their three 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 5, 8 p.m. ET deadline. Teachers and AP coordinators are no longer responsible for this final step.
- It’s still a best practice for teachers to set their own deadlines for students to submit their portfolio components as final before May 5, so they can review the work and check for plagiarism.
The portfolio requirements are not changing for 2022-23. Students are still required to submit the 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.
The AP Art and Design Digital Submission Guide for Students provides details and instructions to support students with their digital submission; teachers should encourage students to review it. It’s also a good idea for teachers to review the student guide so they can support their students.
