The AP Course Audit is an annual process; however, after receiving authorization during any given year, schools will not need to resubmit AP Course Audit forms or syllabi in following years unless the teacher has changed, the school offers a new AP course, or the curricular and resource requirements for a course undergo significant revision by the College Board. When the AP Course Audit opens, Administrators can renew their schools’ course authorizations for the following year through their AP Course Audit online accounts.
Teachers now 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 (AP for All recommends this option for new teachers whenever possible. This will allow for immediate approval
- claim identical to a colleague’s approved syllabus
- 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 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.
