AP Exam Payment Deadline (click here for more information)

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.  Students who register for an AP test after this deadline may be charged a $55.00 late fee, per late test registration, in addition to the $85.00 exam fee. The College Board does not allow for exam adds or drops 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 Dr. Brewer, Principal, or Ms. Smith, Director of School Counseling.


An on-line payment portal is available for electronic payments on the LCPS website ( under Quick Links as “Online Fee Payment.”  You may also directly access this link by visiting: and students must use the LCPS online payment portal instead of the 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 School Counseling Office.


You may find the AP exam administration schedule 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.


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 AP Agreement that was mailed home in early January to the Dominion High School Counseling Office by March 1, 2019.


Additional information for parents and students can be accessed through the College Board’s AP Bulletin. If you have further questions about AP exams, please contact your child’s school counselor.
