AP exams will take place between May 6th and May 17th of 2024. A tentative AP exam schedule can be found on the AP Central website.
All students are required to have a College Board account to access important classroom materials as well as register for exams. Students should create an account and sign up in AP Classroom no later than September 29th. Students SHOULD use a personal email address and not their school email address, as the school email address will expire when they graduate.
Students will login in here: https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/
Teachers, counselors, and AP Coordinators do not have access to student’s College Board account. Issues with logging into your account must be directed to the College Board directly at 888.225.5427.
Each class will have a unique class that you will need to sign up for through AP Classroom. You will receive a unique code from your teacher that will enable you to enroll. Information on how to enroll can be found on the College Board website. This needs to be done by September 29th so we can have a correct accounting of students in each class!
Students will register for their exams through their AP classes. Students who chose to take one or more AP tests beyond six FCPS-funded tests will be charged a fee of $96 per AP test. The fees for the first six AP tests taken for courses in which they are enrolled for high school credit will be paid by FCPS. AP tests taken in other school systems are not included in the cumulative count.
Students enrolled in FCPS online courses must register for an exam only section through their base school.
ALL students must be enrolled in MyAP sections or an exam only section no later than September 29. If you have not enrolled, please contact your AP teacher or Mr. Fianco at [email protected].
Students taking AP tests without enrolling in the corresponding FCPS course are responsible for the test fee(s).
To assist in the decision-making process, students will be provided a report with their previous tests and current AP course enrollment. Students will have the opportunity to opt out of the test(s) by filling out the opt-out form. Families will be billed in December 2023.
You will receive a letter in October that gives the option to opt out of AP exams. This form must be returned to the Student Services office. Do not return the opt out form to teachers. If you do not return the form, you will automatically be registered and billed, if applicable. No extensions will be granted to opt out of a test.
A form will be made available soon, and you will pay the $96 fee through MySchoolBucks.
