Advanced Diploma Programs

Advanced Placement International Diploma

The Advanced Placement International Diploma (APID) (click here to view APID criteria) is a globally recognized certificate for students with an international outlook. The APID challenges a student to display exceptional achievement on AP exams across several disciplines.

Universities worldwide utilize the APID in admissions but it is not a substitute for a high school diploma.  Rather, it provides additional certification of outstanding academic excellence.

To earn an APID, a student attending school within the United States must indicate on at least one AP Exam answer sheet that the results should be sent to a university outside the United States.
