AP Exam Information 2022-2023

  • 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, May 1-12, 2023. Students must register for an AP test by Friday, November 4 at 5:00PM. This can be done on the College Board’s website at AP Students | College Board. Requests received after that date may 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. 

    The AP exam administration schedule is included below and available here. If your student attends the Academies of Loudoun and plans to register for an AP exam, please refer to the Academies of Loudoun AP Exam Registration Guidance Document.

    This year, College Board is offering an in-school digital AP Exam option in the following subjects:


    • AP Computer Science Principles

    • AP English Language and Composition

    • AP English Literature and Composition

    • AP Seminar

    • AP United States History

    • AP World History: Modern


    The digital exams are full length, proctored exams, administered on the same day/time as corresponding paper exams.  Students will have the option to decide which format they would like to take and will need to let their AP teacher know by Friday, November 4. More information about the in-school digital exams can be found on the College Board’s website

    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. 

    Loudoun County Public Schools will pay for up to four AP tests, per enrolled student, for the duration of their high school tenure.  After those four, students, parents, and/or guardians are responsible for all financial obligations, the exception being students who are eligible for free or reduced lunch. Each exam is $88.00, with the exception of AP Seminar and AP Research, which are $136.00. Students are encouraged to contact their post-secondary institutions of interest to determine whether they accept AP scores for credit or course promotion. 

    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 student’s Testing Coordinator, Mark Ziminsky at mark.ziminsky@lcps.org
