CAPITAL AP CAPSTONE DIPLOMA STUDENTS

AP Test Registration

"It is officially AP season! AP test registration will begin October 11th and continue through November 1st. Please see the form that your students will be receiving from their AP teachers that week. We realize it's early, but we need an accurate count this year because fees are returning. Any exam ordered AFTER November 1st will incur a $40 late fee. Cancelled exams after November 1st and no show exams (on the day of the exam in May) will also incur a $40 fee. Advanced Opportunities does pay for most AP exams, which is a $97 savings. Please see your AP teacher, counselor, or AP coordinator for questions."
