The 2019 Advanced Placement examinations begin Monday, May 6 and continue to Friday, May 17. The College Board/Advanced Placement program sets the date and time for each exam and this information is available in the Bulletin for AP Students and Parents 2019, which was sent home with students in February, and online at https://secure-media.collegeboard.org/digitalServices/pdf/ap/apbulletin-students-parents.pdf. Both sources include information that describes the examinations, procedure for grading the examinations, and reporting exam scores.
The Advanced Placement program requires students to take the examinations on the date and time scheduled. Students are permitted to take alternative-late exams only when:
1. Students are scheduled to take two AP exams for the same time and date, or
2. There is a conflict with a school activity that would take the student out of school.
The schedule for the late exams runs from Wednesday, May 22 to Friday, May 24.
2019 - 2020 Registration and Payment
Registration and payment for AP tests will change for the 2019-20 school year. Currently, AP test registration takes place in the spring (February and March) with tests in early May. In the 2019- 20 school year, AP test registration and payment moves to September while the tests will remain in May. While most of the changes are administrative there are a few changes that you should be aware of;
- AP Tests will remain $94, however the payment for the tests will be due in late September.
- In addition, the deposit fee for AP Tests will rise to $40. Any student who decides to cancel their test will lose this deposit fee although they will recoup the $54 remainder of the test price.
- Students taking 2nd Semester only courses, such as AP US Government, AP Macroeconomics, or AP Human Geography will not register or pay for those tests until March.
