Please visit 2021-22  FCPS AP Testing fee schedule  or AP Testing Fees FAQ for in-depth information regarding the 2021-22 AP Test fees.

  • Fees for the first six AP tests taken for courses in which students are enrolled for high school credit will be paid for by FCPS. 
  • For each exam beyond six, families will be charged the College Board testing fee of $95. Students who are eligible for Free/Reduced lunch and have completed the Consent to Share form will not be charged the exam fee(s).
  • Students that wish to take AP tests without enrolling in the corresponding FCPS course are responsible for the test fee(s). 
  • FCPS encourages all students to take AP/IB tests for courses in which they are enrolled. However, students will have the opportunity to opt-out of the test(s) by filling out an Opt-Out form to be provided by the school. 
  • Parents will be billed a non-refundable test fee in December 2021 for tests that exceed the six FCPS funded tests.

AP Opt Out/Cancelled Test/No Show Information

Students will receive their AP Opt-Out form from Westfield High School in mid-October. 

Deadline:  AP students must make Opt-Out decisions by October 22nd.

  • Students who submit an Opt-Out form will receive a confirmation email from Sonya Williams, DSS, to confirm the receipt of your Opt-Out form. If you do not receive an email by October 31, 2021, assume your form has not been received/processed and see your school counselor immediately.
  • AP students who do not complete the Opt-Out form by October 22, 2021, or later choose to not sit for their AP exam, will be assessed a $40 cancellation fee by the College Board. 
  • For the 2021-22 school year there will be NO spring cancellation option for AP exams.  

To assist in the decision-making process, students will be provided a report in early October with their previous tests and current AP course enrollment.
