Advanced Placement Program
AP gives students the chance to tackle college-level work while they're still in high school and earn college credit and placement. We are pleased that many students choose to take Advanced Placement (AP) courses. We want to assist you in planning for the AP exam, which will be administered this spring. Please review the following information carefully.
Students, parents, or guardians are responsible for the cost of the AP exam. Each exam is $87.00, with the exception of AP Seminar and AP Research, which are $135. Dominion’s on-line payment portal can be accessed at https://tinyurl.com/DHSPaymentPortal and will close on November 1, 2021 at 5:00 PM. Within the portal, students will need to select the name of the AP test(s) they wish to take. Please contact the school to discuss the process for accepting cash or check payments.
Students who register for an AP exam after November 1, will be charged a $40.00 late fee, per late registration, in addition to the exam fee.
If a family anticipates difficulty in paying for the exam, the family can request a fee waiver or payment plan at http://bit.ly/DominionAPfeewaiver. If your child receives free or reduced lunch, AP exam fees are covered by LCPS, but your student must still complete the online registration for the exam(s).
The AP exam administration schedule can be found here. Parents/guardians/students must provide their own transportation to the school on the day of testing. Please make every effort to schedule vacations, appointments, or other activities on dates that do not conflict with the testing dates. Make-up testing is permitted for verified emergencies only. Morning exams begin at 7:45 AM and afternoon exams begin at 12:15 PM, with exams lasting between 4-6 hours. Student may not be dismissed from an exam until all students have finished testing.
Additional information for parents and students can be accessed through the College Board’s site and the LCPS website. If you have further questions about AP exams, please contact your child’s school counselor.
