AP Calendar

Spring before starting an AP Italian course
Use this website to learn more about the AP Italian Program, and discuss your plans with your parents, teachers and AP Coordinator.
Check if your teacher has posted summer work to be up to speed for when the classes begin, such as a reading list or a selection of Italian movies to watch.

Talk to your AP Italian teacher or AP Coordinator about taking the AP Italian Exams.
If you need testing accommodation Contact the Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) Coordinator at your school.
Students with disabilities must submit requests for testing accommodations.
Homeschooled students and students whose schools do not offer AP must contact AP Services to obtain a list of local AP Coordinators and schools where they could arrange to test and must contact AP Coordinators identified by AP Services within the required deadline.
Exam Dates

Dates for the new calendar year will be posted once made available by the College Board.
