College Board Changes the AP Ordering Process for 2020
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.
For the 2019-2020 school year, all exam registration will take place in October 2019. Information and cost for all exams will be released to students at the beginning of the school year. All students in AP classes, who register after November 2019, will be charged an additional $45.00/exam late fee. In addition, a $40.00/exam cancellation fee will be charged for any exam order canceled after November 15, 2019.
It is important that all families are aware of these changes, especially as students begin registering for their 2019-2020 courses. College Board made the change to their timeline based on research data showing that AP registration rates and exam scores increased significantly when students registered in fall versus spring. More information on the changes for next year can be found at https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/about-ap/news-changes/ap-2019?excmpid=mtg434-pr-1-vid.
ADD/DROP and CHALLENGE WINDOW – 4/29-5/10

All change requests must be submitted to counseling by Friday May 10th, any further change requests will need to be made at registration in August.
