AP Access and Equity Initiative

College Board's Equity and Access Policy Statement

The College Board strongly encourages educators to make equitable access a guiding principle for their AP programs by giving all willing and academically prepared students the opportunity to participate in AP. We encourage educators to:

  • Eliminate barriers that restrict access to AP for students from ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic groups that have been traditionally underserved.
  • Make every effort to ensure their AP classes reflect the diversity of their student population.
  • Provide all students with access to academically challenging coursework before they enroll in AP classes

Only through a commitment to equitable preparation and access can true equity and excellence be achieved.
