Late testing is not permitted unless approved by College Board. Please visit the following website for College Board-approved late testing policies: https://professionals.collegeboard.com/testing/ap/coordinate/late
  • If you have a conflict, you must talk with an AP coordinator about the reason for the conflict by Thursday, March 1.

Attendance Form

Dropping an AP Course

If you drop an AP Course after Thursday, March 1, you will need to pay an unused exam fee of $15.  Please see an AP Test Coordinator.

Important information – NEW FOR 2017-2018 SCHOOL YEAR

Opt Out Forms – Deadline to return the form is Feb. 2, 2018 – students received this form in January.

  • This year, students have the opportunity to opt out of their AP exams and still receive the extra 1.0 point in their GPA.   If you do not opt out of of the test and then choose not to sit for the exam, you will be expected to pay an unused exam fee of $15.

Paying for AP exams:

  • The fees for the first six AP/IB tests taken for courses in which they are enrolled for high school credit will be paid by FCPS. To determine if a student has used their six paid tests, the cumulative number of AP/IB tests over a student’s time in FCPS is counted.  Each AP exam beyond the first 6 exams will be charged a $93 fee.
  • AP/IB tests taken in other school systems are not included in the cumulative count.
  • Parents with students attending schools offering only AP courses will be billed in April 2018 and can be paid through www.myschoolbucks.com.

AP Registration for Non-Enrolled Exam Takers

Considerations for Non-Enrolled Exam Takers

There are no refunds if the student does not sit for the exam for any reason.

All efforts will be made to have students take their AP exams at their base school. However, specialized exams and space limitations may require students to test at another test location. If the student must travel to a testing site, transportation is not provided.
