Part 5: AP Equity and Access Policy

The College Board’s mission is to connect students to college success and opportunity.  In the Advanced Placement program, we are fully committed to ensuring schools follow our AP Equity and Access Policy: 

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 the elimination of barriers that restrict access to AP for students from ethnic, racial, and socioeconomic groups that have been traditionally underrepresented.  Schools should make every effort to ensure their AP classes reflect the diversity of their student population.  The College Board also believes that all students should have access to academically challenging course work before they enroll in AP classes, which can prepare them for AP success. It is only through a commitment to equitable preparation and access that true equity and excellence can be achieved.
