Lost or no longer can print your APSI certificate?

The link to print your 2020 certificate came through the College Board’s CVENT and was available to you from the day your APSI closed until the first of October.

All replacement certificates require accessing databases and creating a completely new certificate. Because of that, the fee is $25.00 and will need to be paid to UA Little Rock cashiers’ office at 501-569-8757. They are open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Once we receive the receipt from the cashiers office, then we can create your certificate, scan it and send it to you. We will also send a hard copy to your home address. We will need the year of your APSI, the name of the class that you took, and your current address to mail it to you.

Due to College Board’s new Pre-AP Program, our AP Summer Institute will no longer offer Pre-AP.

For Summer 2021, UA Little Rock will continue to monitor the constantly evolving status of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We are committed to providing up-to-date health, safety, and travel information and enacting recommendations based on guidance from the UA System, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and state and regional public health agencies. We are fortunate to receive briefings from the Arkansas Governor’s Office.
