IMPORTANT ADVANCED PLACEMENT TESTING INFORMATION, 2019
Important information for your review:
We are pleased that your student has chosen to take an Advanced Placement (AP) class this year and we want to assist you in planning for the AP exam, which will be administered this spring.
Students, parents, or guardians are responsible for the cost of the AP exam. Each exam is $85.00, which must be paid by March 1, 2019 in order to appropriately plan for test administration. The College Board does not allow for exam drops after April 18, 2019.
Requests for refunds should be directed to the school’s Counseling Secretary or Bookkeeper and will not be accepted after April 18, 2019.
If a family needs to arrange for a payment plan or anticipates difficulty in paying for the exam, the family should speak confidentially with their school counselor.
An on-line payment portal is available for electronic payments on the LCPS website at: https://osp.osmsinc.com/LoudounVA/BVModules/CategoryTemplates/Detailed%20List%20with%20Properties/Category.aspx?categoryid=DB902. Parents and students must use the web address provided, instead of their school’s online payment portal system. Please ensure that you/your student selects the correct AP test(s) from the drop-down menu. There is an additional processing fee of 4% for each online transaction. Checks or cash payments are also accepted by the Counseling Secretary in the Counseling Office. An AP Payment Form (attached) must accompany all cash and check payments. The AP Payment Form is NOT needed for online payments.
The AP exam administration schedule is listed below. 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.
Students attending the Academies of Loudoun may choose whether to take their AP test at the Academies or their home school on days they are scheduled to attend classes at the Academies. Further information will be provided to students attending the Academies regarding registration and payment. Please review the information carefully.
Please indicate understanding of all AP information by signing and returning the attached agreement (listed below) to the School Counseling Office by March 1, 2019.
Additional information for parents and students can be accessed through the College Board’s AP Bulletin (attached). If you have further questions about AP exams, please contact your child’s school counselor.
