Teachers have four options to demonstrate awareness of the course scope and receive AP course authorization:
- adopt a sample syllabus;
- adopt the AP unit guides in the AP course and exam description;
- claim identical to a colleague’s approved syllabus; and
- submit their own course syllabus for review.
Teachers and a school administrator will also need to complete and submit the short AP Course Audit form to confirm awareness of the core requirements for offering a specific AP subject. In order to ensure that AP courses appear in your school’s AP Course Ledger, your AP coordinator and/or account administrator must renew the previously offered course(s) that will be taught again in 2020–21. These steps should be completed by the priority deadline of October 15; the final deadline for completing these steps is January 31.
