The AP International Diploma

The AP International Diploma (APID) is a globally recognized certificate awarded to students who display exceptional achievement across a variety of disciplines. The award certifies academic excellence to colleges and universities all over the world. (But it’s not a substitute for a high school diploma.)

The APID is available to international students attending secondary schools outside the U.S. and to U.S. high school students applying to universities outside the country.

You don’t need to apply for the APID; it’s automatically awarded in the year all eligibility requirements are met. If you earn the award, the College Board will notify you by email.
