2020-2021 AP Exam Registration Windows

AP Exam Registration Deadline for Semester 1 AP Courses is November 13, 2020

Semester 1 deadline - November 13, 2020
Semester 2 deadline - March 12, 2021

AP Exam registration is a 3 part process:

Step 1 - Student AP Portal is automacally set to YES for all students and for each exam - DO NOT CHANGE THIS
Step 2 - Completion of the google form
Step 3 - Payment of exam(s)

College Board is not charging any cancellation or unused exam fees this year.  This means that ALL students' exam decisions should be set to YES (this has already been set as the default). If a student selects 'No,' and then changes their mind after the ordering deadline, they will be charged a late order fee. 

Students should complete the Google Form for registration. 

Payment for exams can be made here. Online payments should be made at the time of registration. The absolute last day for payments to be made is April 16th. If payment is not received by this date, the student will not be able to sit for the exam.
