AP Readers (On Site and At Home Opportunities)

In June 2018, over 17,000 high school and college faculty members served as AP Readers, scoring over 5 million exams during the annual AP Reading. The AP Program would like to invite you to join the pool of eligible AP Readers as we prepare for the 2019 Reading. If you are already an AP Reader, thank you so much for your service.

We have a significant need for Readers in your subject in 2019. If you are not an AP Reader, apply to become one today. You may be eligible to join the Reading pool if you have taught your AP subject for 2 years or more*. The sooner that you apply the better chance you have to be invited to the 2019 AP Reading. **


The 2018 Post Reading survey shows that:

  • 98% of Readers that participate in the AP Reading have a positive experience
  • 97% of returning High School AP Readers have actually made changes to the way they teach or score work as a direct result of their participation in the AP Reading

Opportunities exist to score onsite, as well as from home in some subjects. While we accept applications from AP teachers for all subjects, professionals with expertise in the following subjects are needed the most to expand the AP Reader pool.

Computer Science A


Computer Science Principles*

Spanish Literature & Culture

Environmental Science

U.S. Government & Politics

Human Geography

U.S. History


World History

Depending on the AP Reader needs for each subject, we may select you to serve as an AP Reader in the first year that you apply, or you may be considered for future AP Readings. New applicants in the subjects listed above have a higher probability of being invited to the 2019 Reading versus new applicants in other subjects.

Thank you very much for your support of the AP Program. If you have any questions about becoming an AP Reader, please contact us at [email protected].

*AP CSP, Seminar, and Research teachers are encouraged to apply to become AP Readers, regardless of years of teaching experience.

**If you are currently an AP Reader or have recently submitted an application to become a Reader, there is no need to reapply.
