The Purpose of Pre-AP Course Audit
Before your school can be authorized to offer Pre-AP, the school will need to complete the Pre-AP Course Audit process.
Participation in the Pre-AP Course Audit process is required for teachers to access Pre-AP Classroom, which includes sample model lessons, instructional planning resources, as well as the digital learning checkpoints they commit to administering.
Pre-AP courses must be authorized before “Pre-AP” can be used in course names. Once your school’s courses are authorized, College Board will include them in the Pre-AP Course Ledger—the official list of all Pre-AP courses—so colleges and universities can verify student transcripts.
The Coordinator’s Role in Course Audit
Although you’re not responsible for completing the Pre-AP Course Audit, you do have these responsibilities in connection with completing the audit:
- With your school leadership, determine who the Course Audit administrator will be. This is usually the principal or principal’s designee and may be the Pre-AP coordinator. It’s important for this person to be available during the summer months because the Course Audit process must be completed before access to Pre-AP Classroom is provided. This person is responsible for finalizing Pre-AP Course Audit forms, renewing authorizations annually, and checking the Pre-AP Course Ledger each academic year to make sure it accurately lists their school’s Pre-AP course offerings.
- You must inform new Pre-AP teachers of record (including co-teachers) to complete their portion of the Course Audit process so they can be approved and access Pre-AP Classroom.
Only Pre-AP teachers of record (including co-teachers) should complete the Course Audit process. Instructional coaches and leaders should not complete this process.
