NEW 2019-2020 FCPS AP Exam Registration Timeline and Fees

All AP students must be enrolled in a MyAP classroom for the AP courses in which they are enrolled unless there are special circumstances. Enrollment in MyAP is how AP Testing Coordinators order AP Exams for students, is the vehicle for teacher delivery of instructional resources, and will be used for teachers to view student’s AP Exam scores. Failure of a student to enroll in MyAP is NOT a substitute for completing the Opt-Out form and may result in unnecessary fees. The deadline to join AP courses in MyAP is October 25th.

Exam Registration Instructions for AP Students:

  1. Ensure you’ve joined your class section online by October 25th.
  2. Review your registration details.
    • Once you have joined the class section for each AP course you are taking, you are automatically registered for the corresponding AP exam. As confirmation of your registration, the date and time of your exam will appear in your class section view in MyAP. 
  3. Review the AP exam calendar.
  4. Pay any exam fees that you owe.
    • FCPS pays for the first six AP exams a student takes throughout their high school career. Each AP exam beyond the first six FCPS-funded exams will incur a non-refundable fee of $94.00 (per exam).  Student AP exam fees will be billed via MySchoolBucks in December. Fees should be paid within 30 days of receiving the invoice.
