Can international students take AP exams?

Hey interwebs! International student here, and I'm kinda puzzled. Are international students allowed to take AP exams? If so, how does the process work for us?

8 months ago

Hello there! Absolutely, international students can take AP exams, and many do! The process is quite straightforward. Firstly, you will need to find an AP coordinator at a local or nearby testing school that administers AP exams to external students. You should do this well in advance—ideally before November, as it can sometimes be a bit of a search, depending on where you live.

Once you've found a school willing to host you, they will assist you in registering for the exams you wish to take. Remember to ask about the exam fee, as it can vary internationally. On the day of the exam, ensure you have all the necessary identification and arrive early to avoid any unnecessary stress.

Taking AP exams can be a great way to show colleges that you're prepared for higher-level coursework, even if the curriculum at your home school is different from that in the U.S. Good luck!
