We are pleased that your student has chosen to take an Advanced Placement (AP) course this year and want to assist you in planning for the AP exam, which will be administered in person, at school, via a paper test May 1-12, 2023. Students must register for an AP test by Friday, November 4. This can be done on the College Board’s website at https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/. Requests received after that date will result in a $40 late fee, per test. Students who register for a test but do not take it may be charged a $40 unused test fee.
Students must provide their own transportation to school on the day of testing. Morning exams begin at 7:45 AM and afternoon exams begin at 12:15 PM, with exams lasting about 4 hours. Students may not be dismissed from an exam until all students have finished testing, per College Board regulations. Please make every effort to schedule vacations, appointments, or other activities on dates that do not conflict with the test administration dates, as make-up testing is permitted for verified emergencies only.
