Advanced Placement International Diploma (APID)
The Advanced Placement International Diploma (APID) is a prestigious award that recognizes exceptional achievement on AP Exams across several disciplines.
Universities worldwide utilize the APID in admissions. The APID is not a substitute for a high school diploma, but rather provides additional certification of outstanding academic excellence.
The APID is available to students attending secondary schools outside the United States and to U.S. resident students applying to universities outside the country. Note: 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, to be eligible for the APID.
