AP Exam Updates!

Wed, 09/11/2019 - 8:55am

Dear Parents,

Thank you for supporting your child through the AP course experience. If your child plans to take the end-of-course exam, please take note of the following important information.

College Board now requires students to register for exams in October. Registration is a two-step process.  They will access the portal using their College Board account and a join code provided by the AP teacher. Parents must “opt in” to allow students to use the Portal.  Teachers will provide “opt in” forms to all their AP students.  Then, they will use their Naviance/Family Connections account to complete the registration process and pay for the exam(s).  This is a county process, and registration is only open to student accounts. Students must complete both steps in order to register.  They will receive detailed instructions soon.

The cost is $94/exam.  Payment must be made at the time of registration.  After students complete the online Naviance registration, they are asked to submit a printed copy of the Naviance form along with proof of payment (check, or print-out of online credit card payment).

  • Student Registration (Exam ordered by Nov. 1) - $94
  • College Board Late registration (Ordered Nov. 16–Mar 13) - $94 + $40 fee
  • Unused/canceled exam (Exam that is canceled or not taken by the student) - $40 fee
  • *Refund before Feb 8th for on time registration - $54
  • **Refund after Feb 8th for on time registration - $45

If you elect to register after November 1st, there is no guarantee your registration can be processed in time to avoid fees.  Please register by the 1st. There is no discount for multiple exams.
Students who are self-studying or in Virtual AP courses must follow the same deadlines, but need to see Ms. Weinberg to acquire the join code for registration.
Fee waivers are available for students who meet certain financial need criteria.  Details will be available in Naviance.

Students who can receive accommodations for disabilities must have approval from College Board to receive accommodations during AP exams.  Work with your counselor prior to February to ensure this.  If a student has approved accommodations, they should sync in the new AP Portal.

If you have course-specific questions, please talk with your child’s teacher.  If you have questions about any of the information on this announcement, please reach out to the AP Coordinator: Amy Weinberg (amy_weinberg@hcpss.org)
