AP Exam Registration
Please note that due to changes in the College Board’s AP Registration process, AP exams must now be ordered in the fall. Students were given a join code by their AP teachers to access important information, practice exams, and to register for their AP test(s) on the College Board website. Students that joined the class were automatically registered to take the test unless they indicated otherwise. Students that have not joined a class on the College Board website should do so ASAP, by getting the join code from their teachers. Students who are interested in taking the AP exam, but are not enrolled in the class should see Ms. Reynolds. The deadline for test registration is November 1, 2019. This deadline is for registration only, and no money is currently due. The deadline for payment for the AP exams is February 3, 2020. Please use the following link to pay for your AP Exams. A late fee of$ 25 will be assessed for exams paid for after the February 3 deadline. Furthermore, there will be a $40 College Board fee for all exams canceled after the November 1 deadline, regardless if they were paid for or not. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Davona Reynolds the AP Exam Coordinator.
