Spring registration for Iowa Online AP Academy courses will open on November 7 and continue through December 14, 2016. Seats will be limited, so be sure to register promptly if you can! Available high school courses are: AP Macroeconomics, AP Microeconomics, AP Psychology, and AP US Government. Available middle school courses are: Creative Writing, Introduction to Computer Science, Probability and Statistics, Psychology, and Honors US History to the Civil War.
To register, visit our website (www.belinblank.org/ioapa). If your school registered with IOAPA in the fall, there’s no need to re-register the school. Just click “Enroll Your School” on our website, and you will be redirected to the student nomination step. Students enrolled in year-long classes will be automatically enrolled in the second semester of their course, unless they inform us that they would like to drop, or receive a failing grade for the fall term. For a step-by-step registration guide, check out this post.
Middle school students interested in enrolling in IOAPA courses should take an above-level test to determine eligibility: 6th graders take I-Excel, the new online test developed by the Belin-Blank Center, and 7th and 8th graders take the ACT. For eligibility guidelines, see the Requirements page. For more on above-level testing in general, see this page and this post.
Our website includes helpful information about IOAPA courses and registration. Visit the Getting Started page first, and click around to find the IOAPA handbook, information about how to talk to administrators and students about IOAPA, and information about the AP exam and free AP Exam Reviews available to all Iowa AP students.
Still deciding what class might be a good fit for your student? We created a visual guide to IOAPA middle school courses based on last year’s course outcomes, and the high school guide is coming soon! Stay tuned to the blog for that and much more on IOAPA courses and other topics relevant to IOAPA teachers, parents, and students.
