AP® courses challenge bright students and help get them ready for college. The Advanced Placement Program ® (AP®) Summer Institute offers the most intensive professional development available for AP® educators, which prepares high school teachers for the challenges of the AP® classroom.

Our comprehensive, 100% online courses were designed for teachers who are either designing an AP® course for their high school or who are planning to take over an existing program. 

Benefits of UCLA Extension's Program:

  • 100% online format. Study on your time, from your home.
  • Cost of books is included in the course fee.
  • Courses consist of five weekly sessions.
  • Courses are taught by College Board-endorsed consultants.
  • Course materials are the workbooks published annually by the College Board.
  • The outstanding, internationally-recognized reputation of UCLA and UCLA Extension.

      Individuals wishing to enroll may do so by selecting a course title above, and following the prompts to checkout.  

      If your district office will be paying the course fee by submitting a purchase order, please direct them to submit a scanned copy to this email address: A purchase order can also be faxed to (310) 825-5686. You will be enrolled in a course upon receipt of a purchase order.

      Shipment of course materials will begin in early June

      Please allow for 10 days of shipping time. The material used in these courses are workbooks published each summer by the College Board. The workbooks are shipped via UPS to the enrolled students prior to the course start date. It is imperative that students provide a complete and accurate street address where such shipment can be delivered as well as a current telephone number. We advise against providing a high school office address which may be closed during the summer, and a P.O. address cannot be used. Therefore, you need to enroll early enough to allow for 10 days of shipping time for the books to arrive.

      Military shipments. It is not possible for UPS to ship directly to these addresses. The materials are shipped to an address in Washington D.C. From that location, they are distributed to the various locations. Please consider this extended, and somewhat unpredictable, shipping time when enrolling.
