Resources to support AP World History and AP Calculus teachers with the AP Course Audit process became available on the AP Course Audit website.

The AP Course Audit began accepting syllabi and other materials for authorization.*

Resources to support AP Computer Science Principles syllabus development became available on the AP Course Audit website.

Teachers begin teaching the new, updated, or revised courses in classrooms. This is the deadline for submitting a syllabus or other materials for authorization.*

* AP Calculus and AP World History teachers with previously authorized courses are not required to revise and resubmit their syllabi, but there are a few steps they and their administrators will need to take in the 2016-17 AP Course Audit. For more information, visit the AP Calculus and AP World History pages on the AP Course Audit website.

** Information about what current AP U.S. Government and Politics teachers will need to do to keep their courses authorized will be available in the fall of 2017, before the AP Course Audit process begins for 2018-19.

Curricular Materials

Starting in the spring before a new, redesigned, revised, or updated course launches, the following materials to support syllabus development become available on the AP Course Audit site.

  • AP Curricular Requirements Includes a set of curricular and resource expectations that college faculty nationwide have established for a college-level course.
  • Syllabus Development Guide Features the guidelines reviewers use to evaluate syllabi, along with three samples of evidence for each requirement.
  • Annotated Sample Syllabi Demonstrate curricular requirements within the context of actual syllabi. Teachers may submit a sample syllabus for authorization and use it as an approach to teaching a course.
  • Example Textbook List Includes several college-level textbooks that meet the content requirements of AP courses.
