AP (Advanced Placement) Exam News:

Below is key information about AP exams this year. More importantly, students should be checking their e-mail that they are registered with through College Board.


Key Points:


  • Students are being updated with extensive information through their e-mail used to register with CollegeBoard.
  • If a student chooses not to take their AP exam, they will be refunded the full price (less a $40 late fee if they were charged a late registration fee).
  • Students will not be charged a $40 cancellation fee if they don't take the exam.
  • Students will be provided with an access credential to take their exam/s via e-mail.
  • If a student no longer wants to take an exam, they should just ignore all e-mails from CollegeBoard and not take any exam. To be clear: if a student does not want to take an exam, they DO NOTHING.
  • The AP Coordinator will be able to see who does not take an exam and then can get refunds issued from there (in June).
  • If a student is in need of a device to test with CollegeBoard can help. The student must contact College Board here: https://collegeboard.tfaforms.net/74 by April 24th.

Although our library buildings are closed, Virtual CMPL is in full operation 24/7 with an extensive and growing collection of digital audiobooks, books, magazines, music, movies, TV shows and more. Using our online services you can also do the following: take a course, attend a library program, meet with a professional tutor, or even have your resume reviewed. Visit: //cmpl.org/virtual-cmpl

Remember, if you do not already have a library card, your student ID works as your library card with the last 4 digits of your phone number (whatever number was listed as your primary phone number when entering the district) as your PIN.
