    IMPORTANT AP EXAM CHANGES FOR THE 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR

    The College Board, creators of Advanced Placement, recently announced significant changes to the AP exam ordering process, deadlines, late fees and cancellation fees that will be mandated for all schools and all students in the 2019-2020 school year.

    Next year, all students will decide whether or not to take exams and order their exams by Nov 15, 2019. All students in 1st semester or yearlong AP classes who register after Nov 15, 2019, will be assessed $40.00/exam late fee.
    In addition, a $40.00/exam cancellation fee will be assessed for any exam
    order canceled after Nov 15, 2019.

    The ordering deadline for second semester only courses (AP Psych, AP Comparative Gov., some AP US Gov & Politics, and AP Human Geography) will be
    February 29, 2020 (NCHS deadline).

    You can view the timeline in detail at https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/ap-2019/for-ap-coordinators, under Fall Exam Ordering Overview.


    It is important that all families are aware of these looming changes, especially as students begin registering for their 2019-2020 courses. AP Exam fees are currently around $100/exam, before any late fees are added.  We understand that these changes may cause concern for students, parents and teachers.
    Please keep in mind that these changes are being mandated by the College Board
    and were not decided by the school. 

    Additional details regarding the College Board’s new process will be made
    available early next year once we have more information.
