AP4ME logoState-Wide Access to Advanced Placement (AP) Courses

AP4ME offers Maine high school students throughout the state the opportunity to take Advanced Placement (AP) courses completely online, regardless of where they live or their school’s ability to support AP courses.

Students must apply for and be approved by both parent/guardian and high school (HS) counselor to enroll in AP4ME courses via ExplorEC, the Early College portal to Maine’s Public Universities.

For more information regarding AP4ME please email ap4me@maine.edu, or contact Jamie Whittemore by phone at 207-572-6592.

Student Eligibility

All Maine high school students are eligible to enroll in a maximum of two AP4ME courses per academic year. Homeschool students registered with the Maine Department of Education may also participate in AP4ME classes (up to two courses per academic year).

Important Note

Students are not awarded University of Maine System credit as a result of AP4ME course participation. For students to receive CollegeBoard “credit” for their course, students must complete the AP Exam. AP4ME does not arrange exam dates or provide financial support for fees associated with AP exams.
